ComingSoon reports that DreamWorks has plans to bring author Daphne du Maurier’s 1938 classic back to theaters. Steven Knight has signed to adapt the book, which first came to theaters via Alfred Hitchcock in 1940.
According to ComingSoon:
“The book tells the story of an unnamed American woman who marries a rich Englishman, Maximilian de Winter. Moving into his estate, though, she finds herself confronted by the echoes of her new husband’s first wife, Rebecca and beings to unravel a mystery that lives on even after Rebecca’s death.
The film version starred Joan Fontaine as the central heroine and Laurence Olivier as de Winter.”
