Daisy Ridley to re-team with JJ Abrams for fantasy thriller

LOS ANGELES: Actress Daisy Ridley is set to reunite with her “Star Wars: The Force Awakens director” JJ Abrams on an upcoming fantasy thriller, “Kolma”.


Abrams will produce the new film, for which 24-year-old Ridley is in talks to star in.

“The Diary of a Teenage Girl” director Marielle Heller is in talks to helm “Kolma”.

The picture is based on the 2003 Israeli TV movie “All I’ve Got” (‘Kol Ma She’Yesh Li’).

It follows a 22-year-old woman who is in a terrible car accident that kills her boyfriend. Then, decades later, when the woman dies, she’s given the choice of returning to the day of the accident to live again as a 22-year-old or being reunited with her love.

Abrams is producing the new film along with Ram Bergman, David Lonner and Sherryl Clark. Megan Holley (Sunshine Cleaning) wrote the script.
