Josh Lucas (pictured) has signed on to star in the upcoming re-adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe’s classic “The Tell-Tale Heart”, craftily shortened to just Tell-Tale, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Lucas will star as a single father who gets a heart transplant to save his life. Instead of going on with his life and enjoying his second chance, he soon realizes that the original heart’s owner was a man who was murdered, and a frantic search begins to find the killer before the killer finds him.
I have to admit when we first told you guys about the flick (“Scott Free Tells of Heart” – October 2007), I really didn’t think they’d go down such a typical route with their modernization. But that’s what comes of expecting too much originality out of Hollywood, I guess.
Wonder what a new set of lungs would’ve done in the Dread Central forums!
