Dougray Scott to star in Edgar Allan Poe adaptation
Scottish actor Dougray Scott, his wife Claire Forlani, and Rufus Sewell will star in a contemporary adaptation of Poe's story The Fall of the House of Usher.
The film will be shot in 3-D and will be retitled The Ushers.
The 1839 story takes place in the house of Roderick Usher, a man who has just buried a sister whose presence still haunts his home.
The contemporary story will involve a brother and sister who begin to feel stuck in their Martha's Vineyard home.
