Ridley and Tony Scott's Scott Free Prods. has brought on Josh Lucas (Death in Love) to star in Tell-Tale, a modern-day redo of Edgar Allen Poe's "Tell-Tale Heart."

According to Variety, 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.

Michael Cuesta, who has helmed episodes of Showtime's grisly "Dexter" series in addition to several features, will direct the project.
