This summer will have Emma Watson and Ethan Hawke sharing the screen in a new thriller called ‘Regression.’ Directed by and written by Alejandro Amenábar, the film won’t release until later this summer, but you can checkout the latest trailer below, released by Universal Pictures.
Joining Watson and Hawke on screen will be David Thewlis, the story follows a daughter’s ordeal when her father is accused of a horrid crime that he claims to have no memory of committing. Though he is directing this film, Amenábar is best-known for his writing. A few of his many credits include ‘Vanilla Sky,’ ‘The Others’ and ‘The Sea Inside’. The film is a thriller, and should be a nice addition to Watson’s expanding roles.
This is one of three big films that Watson has in the works over the next few years. Watson will also be starring in ‘Colonia,’ as Lena, and will start production in the highly anticipated live-action adaptation of Disney’s ‘Beauty and the Beast.’ That film will be working off a screenplay written by the very talented Stephen Chbosky, best known for his screenplay work in ‘Rent,’ and ‘The Perks of Being a Wallflower’. Watson will be playing the role of Belle in that film, adding Disney Princess to her list of accomplishments. Hawke is still riding high with his work in the very well received release of ‘Boyhood’. In 2015 he will also be featured in ‘Born to be Blue,’ ‘In a Valley of Violence,’ and ‘The Phenom.’ He will later star in a new film, ‘Maggie’s Plan,’ with Julianne Moore and Travis Fimmel but that project is only expected to begin production later this year. Rebecca Miller wrote the screenplay to ‘Maggie’s Plan,’ she will also direct the comedy.
‘Regression’ is set to release in theaters on August 28, 2015. More information on ‘Beauty and the Beast’ and ‘Maggie’s Plan’ is expected to be released over the next few weeks.
