Netflix has been on a roll lately.
Daphne du Maurier's iconic Gothic novel, Rebecca, is being brought to life once again courtesy of Netflix. While I'm aware this isn't it's first adaptation (Alfred Hitchcock made a film adapting it in 1940) this one certainly looks to be am epic thrill ride.
Directed by Ben Wheatley (Kill List, High Rise) this new Netflix film stars Armie Hammer, Lily James and Kristin Scott Thomas. Wheatley has noted that the film is not a remake of Hitchcock's classic film, but simply a re-adaptation of the source material.
"The story follows a newly married young woman who, upon arriving at her husband’s imposing family estate on a bleak English coast, finds herself battling the shadow of his deceased first wife, the mysterious Rebecca, whose legacy continues to haunt the house."

The paranormal epic is set to come out on October 21st.
