Hitchcock's Rebecca Being RemadeDidn’t anyone learn anything from the remake of Psycho? There are some things that are just better off left alone. Such as … well … anything that was formerly directed by the great Alfred Hitchcock.

According to Variety, 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 du Maurier.

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

Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner will produce for Working Title. More soon.
