Jim Sturgess Digs 'Eliza Graves' With Kate Beckinsale For Director Brad Anderson

The Playlist By Kevin Jagernauth | The Playlist April 2, 2013 at 5:43PM

With two epic sci-fi sagas -- "Cloud Atlas" and "Upside Down" -- in recent memory, along with a straight-to-video Brit crime flick ("Ashes"), a movie with Giuseppe Tornatore ("The Best Offer" -- our review) and a Somali pirate movie in the works, Jim Sturgess has been a bit all over the place of late, and that's not about to change.

With two epic sci-fi sagas -- "Cloud Atlas" and "Upside Down" -- in recent memory, along with a straight-to-video Brit crime flick ("Ashes"), a movie with Giuseppe Tornatore ("The Best Offer" -- our review) and a Somali pirate movie in the works, Jim Sturgess has been a bit all over the place of late, and that's not about to change.

Sturgess has come on board "Eliza Graves" alongside Kate Beckinsale, in the latest effort from Brad Anderson, whose fading goodwill from "The Machinist" was pretty much dashed with last month's "The Call." Anyway. Penned by Joe Gangemi (the forgotten 2007 Emily Blunt thriller "Wind Chill"), the plot is loosely based on an 1845 short story by Edgar Allan Poe, following the titular character (Beckinsale) who happens to be a mental patient in a hospital where the residents have overthrown the staff and are posing as doctors. Sturgess will play a Harved med school grad who becomes obsessed with Eliza.

This all sounds pretty dull, but maybe there will be some nice surprises along the way? Filming kicks off in June. [THR]
