Josh Lucas to Hear Dead People in Tell-Tale, Plot Details

Not long after the announcement of “Tell-Tale”, a movie based on the Edgar Allen Poe short story “The Tell-Tale Heart”, the leading man has been revealed — it will be Josh Lucas. The former “Glory Road” and “The Hulk” star will be starring in the contemporary adaptation for the Scotts — Ridley and Tony — who are producing the film, with directorial responsibilities by Michael Cuesta. The story in “Tell-Tale” won’t be exactly like the Poe version. And by that I mean it won’t be anything like the Poe version. This is a Poe story as told in the year 2007 — which means it’ll be very generic and very dumb, and you’ve already seen it in all those Asian horror movie remakes.

Inspired by the classic Edgar Allan Poe story “The Tell-Tale Heart,” the contemporized adaptation sees Lucas starring as a single father whose recently transplanted heart leads him on a frantic search to find the donor’s killer before a similar fate befalls him.

See? It’s basically an Asian horror movie remake, but (very loosely) “based” on Poe’s short story. I wonder if they’re going to work a dead girl with long hair into this somehow. Although you know, they should have made the hero a girl, and be done with it.
