New Thriller To Be Filmed In Rhode Island

Steven Feinberg, Executive Director of the Rhode Island Film & TV Office, is pleased to announce that the thriller TELL-TALE, produced by Ridley and Tony Scott (GLADIATOR, TOP GUN) and executive produced by Matthew Chausse and Michael Ellenberg, among others, will commence principal photography in Rhode Island on Monday, March 17, 2008. Locations currently include Burrillville and Providence. Production is expected to continue throughout April.

Josh Lucas (POSEIDON, GLORY ROAD), Lena Headey (TERMINATOR: THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES) and the Emmy-winning veteran actor Brian Cox are slated to star.

TELL-TALE, based on Edgar Allen Poe's THE TELL-TALE HEART, is the story of a man whose newly transplanted heart leads him on a dangerous journey to find who murdered its donor.

"We are extremely excited to have such a respected team of filmmakers here in Rhode Island. It will enrich opportunities for our local crew base and talent pool while showcasing our unique locations to viewers across the globe. It's particularly noteworthy that Executive Producer Matthew Chausse is a native Rhode Islander and, as such, is dedicated to building up Rhode Island's film industry infrastructure", stated Executive Director Feinberg.
