'REBECCA' AT NETFLIX
I've told you already that a new movie adaptation of Daphne Du Maurier's REBECCA is being prepared and that Armie Hammer will lead the cast together with (sadly) Lily James and Kristin Scott Thomas (both of whom are as charismatic and lively as a doornail), but now they have new cast additions in lovely Keeley Hawes from UK, Ann Dowd, Sam Riley and Ben Crompton. To start shooting as soon as next week over in France and United Kingdom, REBECCA, directed by Ben Wheatley, tells the story of a newly married young woman who, on arriving at her husband’s imposing family estate on a bleak English coast, finds herself battling the shadow of his dead first wife, the mysterious Rebecca, whose legacy continues to haunt the house.
