Netflix Goes Classic: 'Rebecca' Adaptation Starring Lily James, Armie Hammer

It would appear that Netflix is going to expand their ever-growing slate of films with a classic adaptation- Daphne du Maurier's "Rebecca".

It's been awhile since the last time the tome was successfully brought to the big screen, and the streaming service/studio is bringing in some modern heavy hitters to star. Lily James and Armie Hammer will be playing the leads.

If you are unfamiliar with the story; a newly married couple are trying to build their lives together, but with a looming shadow of a deceased wife following them throughout the incredible house.

While we don't know much about the proposed production yet, we're interested to see how it turns out.

About Mary Anne Butler

Bleeding Cool News Editor Mary Anne Butler (Mab, for short) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), and most recently Bleeding Cool. 

Over the past 10 years, she’s built a presence at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). 

 Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. 

 Though she be but little, she is fierce. #MabTheProfessional
