Rachel Weisz to star in Seance on a Wet Afternoon film adaptation

The film will be directed by Tomas Alfredson

Published: 15th October 2021

Actor Rachel Weisz will star in the film adaptation of hit thriller novel Seance on a Wet Afternoon.

Directed by Tomas Alfredson (Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy), the film will have a script written by Jack Thorne from a story he wrote with Harry Bradbeer, who was earlier attached to direct.

Mark McShane's 1961 novel follows a self-proclaimed psychic medium who convinces her husband to kidnap a child so she can help the police solve the crime and achieve renown for her abilities. When her true intentions come to light, however, her husband realises the plan threatens to consume them both.

Notably, the novel was previously adapted to film in 1964, starring Richard Attenborough and Kim Stanley.

Weisz will produce through her banner Apetite Pictures alongside Robyn Slovo, Legendary, Emma Forbes, and Michael Attenborough.
