Biel returns to B.C. for The Tall Man filming

My Hollywood North column, published in the Vancouver Sun September 11.


A week after Hollywood’s golden girl Reese Witherspoon starts shooting her romantic comedy This Means War (alongside Star Trek actor Chris Pine and Inception’s Tom Hardy), actress Jessica Biel will return to B.C. to star in The Tall Man.

Biel, who was in Vancouver last fall filming the action flick The A-Team, has been cast as the lead role in the psychological thriller that will shoot mainly in and around Nelson.

According to Cold Rock Productions, the film is still in the process of finalizing details. The movie does not pop up on IMDB yet, leaving the plot synopsis and supporting cast details a mystery.

However, a few blogs and websites say the film has a $15-million budget and is about a mother (played by Biel) who tracks a mysterious figure known as “The Tall Man” who has kidnapped her child.

The film’s production office did confirm that the movie will mark French director Pascal Laugier’s English-language debut. They also said the film will involve a lot of night shooting. Biel is involved with on-again-off-again boyfriend Justin Timberlake, so keep your eyes peeled for a visit from the pop singer.

The Tall Man is scheduled to film from Sept. 20 until Nov. 19.
