Alfred Hitchcock's "Rebecca" is Being Remade

Posted: February 10th, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Alfred HitchcockSubmit Comment
DreamWorks is developing a remake of Alfred Hitchcock's classic mystery "Rebecca," that will be written by Steven Knight (Eastern Promises), who will use go back to the original book by Daphne DuMaurier.

Story follows a naive young woman who marries a rich widower and settles in his gigantic mansion, only to find that the memory of the first wife maintains a grip on her husband and the servants.

Hitchcock's film was released in 1940 and won the Best Picture Oscar. It starred Laurence Olivier as the main character.

"Rebecca" is being remade. Certainly it isn't cuz Hollywood has no more creative ideas and care more about a quick buck than taking pride in their work

Can Viggo Mortenson live up to Oliviers' performance?
Since he was in Eastern Promises its my guess Steven Knight will be callin him first

Man, can Hollywood really weasel themselves out of jams, no?

"Oh, yeah, um, we're remaking REBECCA, but no, not the great movie that Hitchc*ck directed which made it so famous, but the book it's based on...."

Hollywood, shut the f*ck up...

"Daphne du Maurier was a Hottie ... lol"

Well, the image I saw was from about 1902 or so, and she was like 16 or so.

She didn't age all that well, but then few do but black folks.
