The Black List has been a famous spot for aspiring screenwriters or directors to find their start. It’s grown to the point that it’s become its own community that helps to develop projects. Of course, there’s also the annual survey where they look for the most-liked screenplays that haven’t been produced yet to support the smaller projects to find a footing. It’s how films like American Hustle, Juno, Spotlight, and many more found their footing in Hollywood. In 2019, the Black List winner was Andrew Semans for his script titled Resurrection. As the project is picking up steam, we can exclusively reveal that the film will include Tim Roth alongside Rebecca Hall in the leading roles.
The project is eyeing a production start in the coming week in Albany with Semans also taking over directing duties. He’s previously worked on projects like 2012’s Nancy, Please, and was a producer on various films including 2021’s The Dig. Hall plays the character of Margaret, who is raising her daughter Abbie on her own. She’s set to go to university until her past comes haunting her in the form of David (Tim Roth). Her well-planned life takes a darker turn as she faces the uncertain. It’ll be interesting to see these two act off of each other in the psychological thriller which currently doesn’t have a release date as of yet.
Marvel fans are excited to see the return of Roth in the upcoming She-Hulk Disney+ series, and his character Abomination was revealed to also appear in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. Rebecca Hall recently appeared in Godzilla vs. Kong and Amazon’s Tales of the Loop series. They have both proven their dramatic muscle and will make a great pairing in Resurrection.
