Mark Redfield is planning a screen adaptation of The Tell-Tale Heart, his second Edgar Allan Poe inspired film announced in the last week. Ingrid Pitt and Robert Quarry are set to star in the thriller.

The film takes place in the final days of the American Civil War around the time of Abraham Lincoln's assassination. The story revolves around an obsessed army officer who is hunting down the killer responsible for taking the lives of his fellow soldiers.

The casting of Pitt and Quarry is somewhat of a cue for Redfield, a lifelong fan of Hammer films. According to, the two actors have never worked together before.

There is no set start date for production.
