Watson joins Hawke in “REGRESSION”


Alejandro Amenabar, of THESIS and Nicole Kidman starrer THE OTHERS, is returning to darker territory with upcoming thriller REGRESSION. Already on board is Ethan Hawke, who’s currently heavily playing within genre. He’ll be joined by HARRY POTTER star, Emma Watson (pictured above in THIS IS THE END). 

Variety reported the casting, with Watson commenting, “I am passionate about Alejandro and his work and am so happy to be collaborating with him. I’m really excited by the challenge my character presents to me as an actress… I can’t wait to begin.”

Curiously, the trade reports the storyline as under wraps, though mentions it was previously described as a film in which a man is accused of sexually abusing his daughter, and may be the victim of a conspiracy. Could a major story change have happened? We’ll see August 28, 2015, when REGRESSION is slated for release.
