KateKate Beckinsale is currently in talks to star in Eliza Graves.

Brad Anderson (The Call) is set to direct the thriller which is based on an Edgar Allan Poe short story from 1845, The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether.

According to THR Beckinsale will play the title character of Eliza, a patient at a mental institution in which the inmates have taken over and are posing as doctors. She becomes the object of affection of a newly arrived Harvard Medical School grad who has no idea of the topsy-turvy world he just entered.

Sounds like the film has potential and is a little different from Kate’s previous work on the Underworld films and the Total Recall remake.
