Jim Sturgess to Co-Star with Kate Beckinsale in Poe-Inspired ‘Eliza Graves’

Written by on April 3, 2013 

This movie has already sold me on the premise alone. Heat Vision reports that Jim Sturgess has signed on to act opposite Kate Beckinsale in Eliza Graves, a psychological thriller loosely-based on the comedic Edgar Allan Poe short story The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether. Sturgess will play a recent Harvard Medical School graduate who falls for a mental patient (Beckinsale) at his new job, an institution that is secretly being run by former patients now masquerading as doctors. Eliza Graves is Brad Anderson‘s directorial follow-up to the recently-released thriller The Call and he’ll be directing from a script written by Joe Gangemi.

A movie about a mental institution secretly run by the very people it’s meant to help? Now that’s a premise I can get behind. Outside of The Call, the filmography of Anderson is quite mpressive, which has me anticipating Eliza Graves. I’ll be keeping my eye out for a trailer in the future and here’s hoping this preemptive excitement is justified.

Eliza Graves begins production June 21st in Bulgaria, so all of you Across The Universe fans should plan your Sturgess stalking accordingly.
