Alejandro Amenábar has found his next leading lady…
The 41-year-old Chilean-Spanish Oscar-winning filmmaker will direct Harry Potter franchise alum Emma Watson in the thriller Regression.
Amenábar, who rose to acclaim after making the Spanish-language sci-fi film Abre los ojos, wrote the original screenplay for The Weinstein Company–Dimension Films project.
The storyline for Regression is being kept under wraps, but the film is being described as an “elevated suspense thriller.”
As previously reported, Ethan Hawke will star in the Regression, which has been slated for release in 2015.
Amenábar’s previous projects include The Sea Inside, which won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 2004.
