One of Edgar Allan Poe's classic tales will be heading to the silver screen. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Poe's The Fall of the House Usher is being developed into a feature film.
Claire Forlani, Dougray Scott and Rufus Sewell have been set to star in the film, which will be titled The Ushers, for Stephen Kay to direct. Gian Marco Marsoni wrote the script and it was said the film would be done in 3D as well.
The story revolves around adult siblings who have lived in the same Martha's Vineyard home for years and start to feel trapped there, so they enlist the help of a real estate agent. The original Poe story, published in 1839, dealt with Roderick Usher, whose recently-deceased sister's presence still haunts the house.
No production schedule was released for the film.
