Alfred Hitchcock’s Rebecca to be remade

DreamWorks and Working Title are gearing up to remake Alfred Hitchcock‘s Best Picture winning 1940 film Rebecca, Variety reports.

The film – Hitchcock’s first American endeavour – starred Laurence Olivier as a widower whose second wife is forever being unfavourably compared to the first.

Ironically, the world will soon be able to say the ‘2nd Rebecca‘ doesn’t live up to the original either.

The new project isn’t exactly a remake though; screenwriter Steven Knight (Eastern Promises) will return to Daphne du Maurier’s 1938 book for inspiration.

Discuss: Well, the Psycho remake worked out well…
