Daisy Ridley and J.J. Abrams Reteam For ‘Kolma’

Star Wars The Force Awakens star Daisy Ridley and director J.J. Abrams

J.J. Abrams helped reestablish the Star Wars Franchise with The Force Awakens, and in doing so he also introduced the galaxy to Daisy Ridley. It was only a matter of time before there was going to be a reunion between the two for another film, and it seems as though it didn’t take that long for it to happen.

Reports are coming in that the two are going to reteam for a film called Kolma. However, Abrams will not be directing, but rather he will be producing. Marielle Heller, who made her directorial debut with Diary Of A Teenage Girl, will be the one to helm the film. Check out the full story below.

According to The Wrap, Kolma is based a 2003 Israeli TV movie by Keren Margalit. Here is their description of the project:

Described as a cross between a loftier, more mystical version of “The Notebook” and Albert Brooks”˜ 1991 fantasy romance “Defending Your Life,” the project follows a young couple who get in a car accident that leaves the man dead. Decades later, the old woman must choose whether to reunite with her long-lost love in the afterlife or return to the fateful day her life changed forever.

Abrams is producing with Ram Bergman (Star Wars: Episode VIII), Sherryl Clark (Cloverfield), and David Lonner (Dope). Megan Holley (Sunshine Cleaning) wrote the most recent draft of the script, which has already been through the hands of Rolin Jones (Weeds), Karen Moncrieff (The Trials of Cate McCall), and Sarah Polley (Away From Her).

The estimated budget for Kolma ranges between $60 million and $70 million, which is apparently “enough to allow for impressive visual effects while keeping the scale of the film relatively modest.”

This will be the first time that we will see Ridley in a role outside the Star Wars franchise. The actress was first approached to star in the Tomb Raider reboot earlier this year. It should be interesting to see what her range will be considering this will be her first role that doesn’t involve the Force or lightsabers, but it certainly makes sense that the role would be in a film that Abrams is producing.

No word yet on when the film will be released.

Heller is best known for her directorial debut on Diary Of A Teenage Girl, which got high praise at the Sundance Film Festival in 2015. We’ll keep you posted on the project as soon as any more developments come up.
