William Beckett to Star in “The Fall of the House of Usher”

Nathan Wrann, the mind behind the films Hunting Season and Burning Inside, is working to bring a short film version of Poe’s The Fall of the House of Usher to life.

And he is bringing along William Beckett in the leading role.

Beckett is, of course, the lead singer of The Academy Is…  He’s also a writer and has dabbled in modeling in the past, but this would be his first feature film.

For those unfamiliar with Poe’s story, it features a young, unnamed narrator (played in the film version by Beckett) who travels to visit an old friend, Roderick Usher, at his family’s sprawling estate.  During his visit, tragedy occurs in the House of Usher…and reality and the written word begin to collide.
