J.J. Abrams is producing a new fantasy thriller called Kolma, and he's immediately going to his Star Wars: The Force Awakens well to cast it. Daisy Ridley is in talks for the movie from Paramount, with director Marielle Heller also close to a deal, THR reports.
Kolma is based on an Israeli TV movie from 2003 where a 22-year-old is in a car accident where her boyfriend dies. When she's dying decades later, she can choose to return to the day of the accident and live her life again from 22, or be reunited with her lost love.
Ridley, in classic Star Wars fashion, was an unknown before The Force Awakens, but is now seen as a highly in-demand actress. She's also reportedly in talks for a reboot of The Tomb Raider franchise (based on the reboot of the game franchise), and currently filming Star Wars: Episode VIII for a December 15, 2017 release.0comments
