DreamWorks to remake Hitchcock’s ‘Rebecca’

Working Title taps 'Eastern Promises' scribe for classic mystery

DreamWorks and Working Title Films are embarking on a feature remake of Alfred Hitchcock’s classic mystery ”Rebecca,” that will be written by ”Eastern Promises” scribe Steven Knight, who will 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.

Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner will produce for Working Title.

Knight earned acclaim early in his career for writing Stephen Frears’ ”Dirty Pretty Things” and he recently adapted Dan Brown’s bestselling novel ”The Lost Symbol” for Sony. Knight is currently prepping his directorial debut ”Hummingbird,” which will star Jason Statham.

Knight is repped by CAA.
