David Fincher will direct the Max Ehrlich novel adaptation, which will be written by Andrew Kevin Walker. Fincher will produce with Michael De Luca.
Fincher and Walker respectively wrote and directed the 1995 thriller Se7en for New Line when De Luca was its president of production.
Ehrlich wrote the adaptation of his own book. The novel and original film were released in 1975, the latter directed by J. Lee Thompson and starring Michael Sarrazin and Margot Kidder.
The book centers on a college professor who begins having recurring dreams and nightmares and, realizing they are images of a past life, decides to search out the source of the visions. With his girlfriend in tow, he discovers a woman and her grown-up daughter who are keys to his past life.
The new adaptation will go back to the novel as the source material.
No production date has been set.
