A Rebecca remake?
I'm much more attached to the book than the Hitchcock film - actually, I'm not sure I've seen the whole Hitchcock film, as until very recently it wasn't available on DVD - so I'm interested in this proposed new remake. Of course, that article doesn't even mention the 1990s Masterpiece Theater version, which was quite good and faithful to the book. But in general, I tend not to be too much of a purist, and I'm in favor of as many possibly-good adaptations of my favorite books as possible. Now I'm thinking about casting . . . Ideas, anyone?
