A supernatural force may soon be reuniting J.J. Abrams and Daisy Ridley.
Paramount is developing the supernatural drama “Kolma” with Abrams producing through his Bad Robot production company and Ridley in talks to star.
Marielle Heller is in talks to direct from a script by Megan Holley. Besides Abrams, producers are Ram Bergman, Sherryl Clark and David Lonner.
The remake of the 2003 Israeli TV movie Kol Ma — which translates to English as “All I’ve Got” — centers on a man who died in a car accident 50 years ago who waits on the other side for his former girlfriend who survived.
Abrams directed and co-wrote “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” He’s also produced the rebooted “Star Trek” franchise and the last three “Mission: Impossible” films.
Ridley is currently shooting “Star Wars: Episode VIII.” She’s also executive producing “The Eagle Huntress,” which premiered at Sundance and is being released through Sony Classics.
