According to THR, UNDERWORLD’s Kate Beckinsale is in negotiations to star in ELIZA GRAVES, a psychological thriller from Nu Image/Millennium. Brad Anderson (SESSION 9THE CALL) will direct the film which is loosely based on a short story of Edgar Allan Poe’s called “The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether” and will be adapted by Joseph Gangemi.

Beckinsale will play the lead character of Eliza, a Harvard Medical School grad who takes a job at an insane asylum, falling for one of the doctors but then discovering that the occupants have taken it over. Sounds like a pretty solid set-up for a horror film and with the gorgeous Kate Beckinsale as its leading lady I’d say this one is off to a pretty good start.

Shooting is expected to begin this June with Oren Peli (PARANORMAL ACTIVITY) serving as one of the producers.
