Josh Lucas has been picked up to topline Tell-Tale, a film that is inspired by the classic Edgar Allan Poe story The Tell-Tale Heart.
Josh Lucas for Tell-Tale
In Tell-Tale Lucas will play a single father whose recently transplanted heart leads him on a frantic search to find the donor's killer before a similar fate befalls him.
Scott Free's Ridley Scott, Tony Scott and Michael Costigan will produce alongside Social Capital Films' Martin Shore and Christopher Tuffin.
Michael Cuesta will direct.
Lucas has been a busy bee of late as he recently wrapped both Death in Love and Boy in the Box. The actor was last seen chasing a rogue military jet (Stealth), coaching a basketball team (Glory Road), and trying to find his way to the bottom of a cruise liner (Poseidon).
