Director Pascal Laugier has found his star for his first English-language film. Screen Daily is reporting that Jessica Biel has come aboard to star in The Tall Man.

Laugier wrote the script and will direct the film, which centers on Biel's character whose child was kidnapped by a shadowy figure known only as The Tall Man. Here's how Laugier described the film to the site.

"I like to think of The Tall Man as a sort of Panic Room... outside! It is a 'woman in jeopardy' movie with a lot of twists and a strong female character that you feel very connected to."

The film will be budgeted at $15 million and will begin production in September, with shooting to take place in Vancouver.
