Directed by Ben Wheatley, the romantic thriller film, ’Rebecca’ is a film adaption of Daphne du Maurier’s 1938 novel about a young woman who marries a wealthy man whose first wife has died under mysterious circumstances.

Starring Lily James, Armie Hammer and Kirsten Scott Thomas, the story has been adapted to several films, including the iconic 1940’s Oscar-winning version by Alfred Hitchcock. So these are quite big shoes to fill… no pressure, no pressure.

After a whirlwind romance in Monte Carlo with handsome widower Maxim de Winter (Armie Hammer), a newly married young woman (Lily James) arrives at Manderley, her new husband’s imposing family estate on a windswept English coast. Naive and inexperienced, she begins to settle into the trappings of her new life, but finds herself battling the shadow of Maxim’s first wife, the elegant and urbane Rebecca, whose haunting legacy is kept alive by Manderley’s sinister housekeeper Mrs. Danvers (Kristin Scott Thomas). 

The upcoming film is written by Jane Goldman, Joe Shrapnel and Anna Waterhouse. The cast also includes Tom Goodman-Hill, Bill Paterson, Keeley Hawes, Sam Riley, Ann Dowd and Mark Lewis Jones.
