DreamWorks to remake Hitchcock's '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. . . .

Knight earned acclaim early in his career for writing Stephen Frears' ''Dirty Pretty Things'' and he recently adapted Dan Brown's bestselling novel ''The Lost Symbol'' for Sony. Knight is currently prepping his directorial debut ''Hummingbird,'' which will star Jason Statham. . . .

"Sympathy must precede belligerence. First I must understand the other, as it were, from the inside; then I can critique it from the outside. So many people skip right to the latter." -- Steven D. Greydanus

"Anyway, in general I love tragic artists, especially classical ones."

"Even the forms for expressing truth can be multiform, and this is indeed necessary for the transmission of the Gospel in its timeless meaning."
