DreamWorks and Working Title Films are planning a reboot of Alfred Hitchcock's classic mystery movie, Rebecca. Steven Knight will be penning the new script from the original book by Daphne DuMaurier.

The mystery 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.

The writer is also currently working on his directorial debut Hummingbird which stars Jason Statham. Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner are producing the reboot.

This project is still in development.
