Daisy Ridley Reunites With J.J. Abrams for Thriller 'Kolma': Report

19 April 2016 2:15 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" starlet Daisy Ridley has reportedly booked her next project, and she'll be working with a familiar face.

TheWrap reports that Ridley will re-team with her "Force Awakens" director J.J. Abrams for the thriller "Kolma," a remake of the Israeli film "All I've Got." Ridley will star, and Abrams will produce through his Bad Robot banner.

According to the trade, the flick has an unusual fantasy element. Here's how the 2003 original plays out:

Described as a cross between a loftier, more mystical version of "The Notebook" and Albert Brooks' 1991 fantasy romance "Defending Your Life," the project follows a young couple who get in a car accident that leaves the man dead. Decades later, the old woman must choose whether to reunite with her long-lost love in the afterlife or return to the fateful day her life changed forever.

TheWrap cautions that this logline could change in the remake, »

‘The Diary of a Teenage Girl,’ ‘Tangerine,’ and ‘The End of the Tour’ Directors Plan New Features

19 April 2016 12:38 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Add another title to the ever-expanding Bad Robot slate: according to The Wrap, J.J. Abrams and Daisy Ridley will reunite — this time as producer and star, respectively — on Kolma, a remake of the 2003 Israeli picture All I’ve Got and, it seems, the next directorial effort for Diary of a Teenage Girl helmer Marielle Heller. While the outline could (and likely will, in some ways) change from one iteration to the next, it’s worth noting that the original incarnation concerned a woman who, reflecting on the accident that left her then-lover dead, is left to choose between joining him in the afterlife or returning to the day of said accident.

Despite the marshaling of forces, including a new draft by scribe Megan Holley (Sunshine Cleaning), word on when production might kick off remains unclear — though one imagines another Abrams-produced, Ridley-led outing will need to wrap before things move forward. »

When she finally reaches the afterlife, she's given two choices to return to the world of the living: she can either wake up and continue her life as is or she can forget everything since that first love and wake up young again with him.

Daisy Ridley To Star In Thriller 'Kolma,' Directed By Marielle Heller, And Produced By J.J. Abrams

19 April 2016 7:05 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

For a few years now, J.J. Abrams has been trying to get a remake of the 2003 Israeli TV movie, "Kol Ma She'Yesh Li" ("All I've Got") off the ground. Back in 2013, he rounded up Ron Howard to direct, but the version didn't get in front of cameras. But now he's got some new talent to help bring the story to life. "The Diary Of A Teenage Girl" helmer Marielle Heller will direct "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" star Daisy Ridley in the fantasy thriller. Megan Holley ("Sunshine Cleaning") has penned the script for "Kolma" that centers on a young, in-love couple who get into a car accident where the man is killed. The woman moves on, marries, has three children, but 50 years later when she faces her own end, she's given the choice of living again as a 22 year-old, or being reunited with her first love.  The original movie was »

Daisy Ridley In Talks To Join Kolma For Bad Robot

19 April 2016 2:48 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Bless J.J Abrams, for he delivered to us the glorious Daisy Ridley, when he cast her as the lead in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. With few screen credits to her name, the actress and her co-star John Boyega strolled off into the history books, having successfully re-booted the most legendary film franchise in history. Little wonder then, that Ridley is now reportedly circling another female-led film produced by Abrams and his Bad Robot banner – this one titled Kolma.

The movie is an exciting prospect – not just because Daisy Ridley may star, but also because it will be the second feature length movie from director Marielle Heller, who debuted with The Diary Of A Teenage Girl in 2015. In addition, while Heller is set to work on the script prior to shooting, it is written by Megan Holley, who scripted 2008’s Sunshine Cleaning – which starred Amy Adams, Emily Blunt and Alan Arkin. »
