Rachel Weisz’s Mystery-Drama ‘My Cousin Rachel’ Gets Release Date

Fox Searchlight has set a May 5 limited release date for its mystery-drama “My Cousin Rachel,” starring Rachel Weisz and Sam Claflin.

Roger Michell directed from his own script, adapted from the 1951 novel by Daphne du Maurier that’s mostly set on an estate in Cornwall. Kevin Loader is the producer.

Holliday Grainger, Iain Glen, and Pierfrancesco Favino also star in the story of a young Englishman who plots revenge against his mysterious, beautiful cousin, believing that she murdered his guardian. But his feelings become complicated as he finds himself falling under the beguiling spell of her charms.

My Cousin Rachel” was previously adapted into a 1952 film by Nunnally Johnson and directed by Henry Koster. Olivia de Havilland starred with Richard Burton, who earned his first of his seven Academy Award acting nominations for his role as Philip Ashley.

Filming took place last spring in England and Italy. Fox Searchlight announced the news Friday on Twitter.
