William Beckett To Star In Edgar Allan Poe Film Adaptation

Hey Everyone!
Weird I know, but apparently true! Academy Is frontman, William Beckett, is reportedly set to star in a film adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe's classic The Fall Of The House Of Usher.

Now, I'm sure many of you are reading this going "wtf... acting?" but if you know the band well, then you'll know Beckett is an artsy guy in many ways. He even dabbled in modelling (but I mean come on, with that bone structure, WHY THE HECK NOT? right? haha). In any case, he is also a literature nerd, so this only seems to perfect for him. An artsy, indie film, based on a classic piece of literature... spot on.

The film will begin filming in December. Beckett will play the lead role of the narrator, so definitely look forward to that!

What do you think of this new project for Beckett? I say, Break a Leg!
Rock On,
