eliza-graves-posterDavid Thewlis and Brendan Gleeson are set to star in Brad Anderson’s Eliza Graves.

They will join Kate Beckinsale, Jim Sturgess, Michael Caine and Ben Kingsley in the new psychological thriller from Nu Image/Millennium.

Quite the cast shaping up for this one.

The film is based on an Edgar Allan Poe short story from 1845, The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether.

Beckinsale is playing 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 (Sturgess) who has no idea of the topsy-turvy world he just entered.

The film is set to begin shooting next week.
