Did you replace the fuel filter? A stuck check valve is another possibility.

changing the fuel filter is good upkeep so do that first anyway, however if there is still no fuel at the rail and the pump is running it is possible that the hose connecting the pump to the top of the module/sending unit housing split or came off in which case replace the tank module
