Despite the films name, this is not the life story of the Tall Man from the Phantasm series. Pascal Laugier, writer and director of Martyrs, has returned to write and direct The Tall Man, starring Jessica Biel. Here is the synopsis:
In an isolated, slowly dying mining town, children are vanishing without a trace – abducted, the townsfolk whisper, by a mysterious entity known locally as “The Tall Man.” Town nurse Julia Denning (Jessica Biel; “Total Recall,” “Strangers”) seems skeptical…until her young David disappears in the middle of night. Frantic to rescue the boy, Julia lives every parent’s darkest nightmare in this twisting, shock-around-each-corner thriller from acclaimed director Pascal Laugier (“Martyrs”) called THE TALL MAN.
The new still shows Jessica Biel running down a road, with a look of pure panic on her face. See it here:
The Tall Man is scheduled to be released late summer 2012.
