I know what you’re thinking–yes, most of us would doubtless love to play doctor with Lena Headey too, but that’s not always possible. In fact, for most of us it will remain little more than a pipe dream. But it’ll come with some visuals now in the upcoming release of Tell Tale, based on the Poe short story The Telltale Heart.
Loosely based, anyway….
This looks like little more than an adaptation of The Eye, only with a heart instead. Headey plays a doctor overseeing a recent transplant for a young single father whose wife abandoned him years prior. But he’s starting to have some problems with the new organ, and it’s causing him to hallucinate horrible visions. As it turns out, the new heart comes with some baggage of its own–the original owner was murdered. Now, our young father has to set out and find the donor’s killer, lest he wind up dead too.
Sounds pretty interesting, really, and we’ll get the opportunity to find out when it hits later on. It’s already been making the rounds at festivals, so hopefully a firm release date isn’t far behind.
