Bob and Harvey Weinstein announced today that Emma Watson (HARRY POTTER franchise, THE BLING RING, THIS IS THE END, NOAH) will star in the upcoming thriller REGRESSION. The film, based on Alejandro Amenábar’s original screenplay, will be directed by Amenabar and produced by his longtime partner Fernando Bovaira for his company MOD Entertainment together with Canadian producer Christina Piovesan. REGRESSION will also star Academy Award® nominee Ethan Hawke (THE PURGE, BEFORE MIDNIGHT) and be released by TWC-Dimension in 2015. FilmNation Entertainment is handling international sales.
The storyline is currently being kept under wraps.
REGRESSION sees the return of Amenábar to the thriller genre, where he and Dimension previously had great success with THE OTHERS, which grossed over $200 million worldwide and starred Nicole Kidman.
The Tumblr Ring. Emma Watson recently explained to NPR that she got into character by starting a Tumblr page:
"Sofia really encourages improvisation, so that meant I also had to think like the character. That’s what the journaling was about, not just memorizing the lines; think like Nicki. I actually did a blog as Nicki, with a Tumblr page. It had a pink leopard skin background and tons of shoes.”
