J.J. Abrams Stays In The Daisy Ridley Business


J.J. Abrams and Daisy Ridley are joining forces again.

In connection with Paramount, who’s distributed Abrams’ Cloverfield movies, the Force Awakens filmmaker has cast his “Rey” actress breakout star Ridley in a remake he’s producing, title Kolma. Based on a 2003 Israeli TV movie called “Kol Ma” — which means “All I’ve Got” – Kolma is a supernatural romantic drama. It’s the story of a man who dies in a car wreck and then waits 50 years on the other side for his girlfriend, who survived the accident. When the woman finally dies, she’s forced to make a difficult choice.

Aside from Abrams, the other key collaborators along with Ridley are also women. The script is written by Megan Holley, who wrote the indie female-centric dramedy Sunshine CleaningMarielle Heller is currently in talks to direct. Her 2015 directorial debut The Diary Of A Teenage Girl (which she also wrote) – about the sexual awakening of a 1970s teen girl who has an affair with her mother’s boyfriend – was one of the year’s most critically acclaimed films.

No production schedule or release date for the film has been announced.
