Look, Hollywood, we're all just trying to have a nice, relaxing Friday, alright? No need to do anything crazy like remake a Hitchcock classic or someth--oh, never mind, you're already remaking Rebecca:
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.
As much as I would like try to get to the business of DreamWorks being Steven Knight's Mrs. Danvers, malevolently convincing the screenwriter it's a good idea to dig out Rebecca's old clothes and wear them for us as if the associated memories won't make us furious, I don't even have the energy for that. All I can get out is the saddened head shake of a disappointed father who doesn't know quite where he went wrong. Look, I'm sorry I caught the last half of Disturbia on TV. Is that why you're doing this?
