Jessica Biel Into A “Tall Man”

Jessica Biel has joined the cast of Pascal Laugier’s first English-language feature, the $15 million suspense thriller “The Tall Man” says Digital Spy.

In a film that sounds tailor made for Ashley Judd or Jodie Foster, Biel plays a mother whose child is kidnapped by a shadowy figure known only as The Tall Man. She begins an intense hunt to find and retrieve her child.

Laugier wrote the script and will direct. Shooting kicks off in September in Vancouver.
