VARIETY – Rebecca Hall will star in the independent horror-thriller “The Night House” from producer David S. Goyer.

The film will be directed by David Bruckner from a script written by Ben Collins and Luke Piotrowski. “The Night House” follows a widow who begins to uncover her recently deceased husband’s disturbing secrets.

Goyer, best known for penning “The Dark Knight” trilogy, and Keith Levine are producing under their Phantom Four production company. Anton is fully financing, executive producing, and handling worldwide sales. Harold van Lier, Anton’s president of distribution, will begin selling the movie at the European Film Market at the Berlin Film Festival this week. Endeavor Content is co-repping the U.S. rights with Anton. The pic is scheduled to begin shooting in May.

Hall is in production on Warner Bros.’ “Godzilla vs. Kong,” which is slated for a 2020 release. She is making her feature directorial debut on “Passing,” which she has adapted for the screen. She will next be seen in Max Minghella’s “Teen Spirit.”

Bruckner most recently directed the horror thriller “The Ritual,” which debuted at the 2017 Toronto Film Festival and was picked up for distribution by Netflix.

Hall is represented by Julian Belfrage Associates, WME, and attorneys Hansen & Jacobson. Anton’s Laura Wilson negotiated the deal with Endeavor Content on behalf of Phantom Four.

Two stills of Rebecca in the upcoming holiday comedy, Holmes & Watson have been added to the gallery. Based on the trailers, it’s hard to get an idea of how significant her role will be in the film, though we can hope she at least gets to display some of her comedic ability.

Christmas has come early, Rebecca fans–we at last have some lovely new photos of her attending the Holmes & Watson photocall in Los Angeles. In recent months, we’ve had lots of exciting news about her career and upcoming projects, but her presence has been missed – especially since many of her Instagram posts are now gone. Back in January, she announced she was expecting her first child with husband Morgan Spector – so this would of course explain why she’s been a lot quieter recently. We wish Rebecca and her family the very best, not just for the holiday season, but for the year ahead. I have a feeling it will be a great one!

This certainly came as a surprise (to me at least!) – Rebecca is appearing in Max Minghella’s directorial debut, Teen Spirit, alongside Elle Fanning. The teaser trailer was released today, and the film is set to premiere at TIFF (which runs Sep 7-17). I can’t wait to see more!

Violet is a shy teenager living in the Isle of Wight who dreams of pop stardom as an escape from her small town and shattered family life. With the help of an unlikely mentor, Violet enters an international singing competition that will test her integrity, talent and ambition.

THE INDEPENDENT – Actress Rebecca Hall has said she has donated her salary from an upcoming Woody Allen film to Time’s Up, a fund set up to combat sexual harassment and inequality in entertainment and beyond.

Hall, who appears in the upcoming film Allen film A Rainy Day in New York, explained that she made the decision after reading statements from Allen’s adopted daughter Dylan Farrow.

“My actions have made another woman feel silenced and dismissed,” Hall wrote on Instagram. “That is not something that sits easily with me in the current or indeed any moment, and I am profoundly sorry.”

“It’s a small gesture and not one intended as close to compensation but I’ve donated my wage to Times Up,” she continued. “I’ve also signed up, will continue to donate, and look forward to working with and being part of this positive movement towards change not just in Hollywood but hopefully everywhere.”

As the #MeToo movement has gained momentum in Hollywood, attention has focused once again on the allegations by Farrow against Allen, who has continued to make films starring prominent actors in the years since she accused him of molesting her.

In 1992, Allen’s former partner Mia Farrow contacted authorities after her daughter allegedly described sexual abuse by the director. Though Allen has repeatedly denied the allegations and was not criminally charged, Farrow was granted with full custody after a judge found Dylan’s testimony to be credible.

Hall’s announcement arrived the day after actress Mira Sorvino wrote an open letter to Farrow apologising for acting in one of Allen’s films in the 1990s.

“I confess that at the time I worked for Woody Allen I was a naive young actress,” Sorvino wrote in The Huffington Post. “I swallowed the media’s portrayal of your abuse allegations against your father as an outgrowth of a twisted custody battle between Mia Farrow and him, and did not look further into the situation, for which I am terribly sorry. For this I also owe an apology to Mia.”

The Time’s Up legal defence fund was set up by women in the entertainment industry to provide support to victims of sexual harassment at work and has raised more than $16m (£12m) so far.
