You can live your whole life not realizing that what you’re looking for is right in front of you.” - One Day.

Jim Sturgess and Doona Bae in London 10/08

Edgar Allan Poe’s short story The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether comes to life in Stonehearst Asylum. Jim Sturgess stars as Edward Newgate, a medical school graduate who takes a job at a mental institution, who becomes smitten with one of its patients, Eliza Graves (Kate Beckinsale). He soon comes to realize that the actual doctors have been locked away in the basement, with the patients now running the asylum. {x}

"Y’know, it’s from travelling around a lot that you start to get grasp on how incredible London is. I used to be obsessed with New York and London was just a place I thought I knew so well. Until one day I realised, New York doesn’t have Brixton Market…or Brick Lane. It’s the parks and the pubs – you can’t get them anywhere else but in London…a park and a pub, and a scotch egg! You can’t get one of those in New York either. (Laughs)."

Thanks to Yahoo Movies, we now have the first promotional trailer for Stonehearst Asylum featuring Jim SturgessKate Beckinsale, Michael Caine,and Ben Kingsley.

Jim Sturgess (Across the Universe) takes the lead as Edward Newgate, a med school grad who accepts an unenviable new position at the titular mental institution in mid-19th century France (you know, when treatment of the mentally ill wasn’t exactly an evolved practice). He finds romance with a patient, Eliza (played by Kate Beckinsale and likely named after Poe’s mother), but all sorts of less delightful surprises, too, in the asylum’s dark underbelly.


Millennium Films has introduced a new poster and made a name change to their film Eliza Graves. It is now titled Stonehearst Asylum. Directed by Brad Anderson, the film features Jim SturgessKate BeckinsaleBrendan GleesonBen Kinglsey and Michael Caine.  Additionally, a new facebook page and a holding page for the official website for the newly titled film have been added, but are not yet active.  No release date has been set, but it’s expected to be in theaters in Fall of this year.
