THE WRAP – Rebecca Hall is set to star in Joel Edgerton’s untitled directorial debut, which Rebecca Yeldham will produce with Blumhouse and Blue-Tongue Films, TheWrap has learned.
Edgerton wrote the script and will co-star in the contemporary suspense thriller, which will start shooting early next year. The logline is being kept under wraps.
Yeldham (“On the Road”) and Blumhouse principal Jason Blum (“Paranormal Activity”) will produce the indie movie in association with Edgerton’s Blue-Tongue Films.
Edgerton next stars opposite Christian Bale in Ridley Scott‘s “Exodus.” His feature film credits include “The Great Gatsby,” “Zero Dark Thirty” and the acclaimed MMA movie “Warrior.” He’s represented by CAA and attorney Bob Wallerstein.
Hall starred in “The Town” with Ben Affleck and “Iron Man 3” with Robert Downey Jr., as well as Woody Allen’s “Vicky Cristina Barcelona.” She’s repped by WME and Julian Belfrage and Associates.
Blumhouse’s most recent film “Ouija” has held the top spot at the domestic box office for the past two weeks, marking Blumhouse’s 7th microbudget film to hit #1. The company has the Jennifer Lopez thriller “The Boy Next Door” opening in January.
Yeldham is repped by attorney Craig Emanuel.

I have added some behind the scenes photos of Rebecca from her role in the upcoming short film, Ruminate to the gallery. Hopefully it will be available to watch very soon! Many thanks to Dog Eared Films for the images.
To ruminate means to think; to chew thoughts over and over, focusing on symptoms of distress… their causes, and their consequences. Gemma is in her mid-thirties: She is a childless woman, not in a serious relationship, who lives in the big city of London, primarily concentrating on work and survival. The years have slipped by and the things that appear to have fallen into place for her friends and peers still elude her. This film follows her over two days. We never hear her speak. We never learn her thoughts. Instead the audience witnesses a series of events that make us question her happiness culminating in a visit to her gynecologist. It is revealed that she has possible cancerous cells that may have to be removed, and this could affect her ability to bear children. Just when Gemma is at her most vulnerable, her best friend offers one single, simple truth: All you can do, is be the best you you can be.
With huge thanks to Broadway World, I have added some wonderful new photos of Rebecca on stage for her role in Machinal. If you’re planning to see the show, be sure to let us know how it was–and of course, have a great time!

Lots of Rebecca in the first official trailer for Transcendence. It looks very promising!
Two brand new teaser trailers for Transcendence have been released, and although neither contains footage from the film, they feature narration from Johnny Depp and Morgan Freeman. Both do a pretty good job at putting the film into perspective. You can watch them here and here. I have also added a behind the scenes photo of Rebecca alongside director Wally Pfister and co-star Paul Bettany to the gallery. Be sure to take a look!
