A ROYAL AFFAIR Director Nikolaj Arcel to Helm REBECCA Remake
DreamWorks’ remake of the classic 1940 Alfred Hitchcock film, Rebecca now has a new director named Nikolaj Arcel. Arcel directed the Danish film A Royal Affair which was nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar this year. He is expected to do a rewrite on the script, but sources say that he already has young actresses eyeing the film.
The story of Rebecca is about a young woman who marries a rich widower. His late wife haunts their mansion estate and it causes a lot of problems throughout the story. The remake of the script will slightly match Daphne Du Maurier’s source novel than Hitchcock’s film.
