Jessica Biel has a lead role in Pascal Laugier's "The Tall Man" and a look at her in the movie has been found by Shock Till You Drop at 2010 American Film Market. The photo captures Biel's Julia with bloody face, leaning on a big rock as she is seemingly tired and afraid.
Coming from French filmmaker Laugier, the movie is set in Cold Rock, U.S.A. where children have gone missing over the years leaving neither a clue nor a witness. Superstitious locals talk of The Tall Man, a legendary, mysterious dark figure who takes children away never to be seen again.
Julia is a nurse living in Cold Rock who doesn't believe in legends. Until one night, waking up with an eerie feeling she goes to her son's bedroom and finds his bed empty. Rushing downstairs she stops dead in her tracks: a huge dark figure stands in the entrance holding her son David. Driven by pure instinct, Julia rushes after them willing to do whatever it takes to get her son back. The chase is on and with it the quest for answers: who is The Tall Man? What becomes of the children?
Biel co-stars Stephen McHattie, William B. Davis, Samantha Ferris and Jodelle Ferland in "The Tall Man". The indie thriller is scripted by Laugier and is looking for distributor at AFM.
