'Regression'

It has been a long decade since Chilean director Alejandro Amenabar's won the Foreign Language Oscar for "The Sea Inside" in 2005, and then flopped in 2009 with "Agora." 

Now, he will finally revisit the bleak, genre-driven territory that first defined his career -- from 1997's "Abre Los Ojos" to 2001's ravishingly beautiful ghost story "The Others" -- with his next film, "Regression."

Starring Ethan Hawke and Emma Watson, and also written by Amenabar, "Regression" turns on a detective (Hawke) whose investigation of a young girl's (Emma Watson) gravely serious accusations against her father (David Dencik) unearths a powerfully scary conspiracy. Hawke's Detective Bruce Kenner is aided by a psychologist (David Thewlis) who performs regression therapy on the father, also uncovering more unhappy memories.

On board the creative team of the film, which wrapped principal photography in Toronto this week, are "Pacific Rim" production designer Carol Spier, "The Last Days" DP Daniel Aranyo and VFX supervisor Felix Berges ("The Impossible").

"Regression" doesn't hit US theaters until August 28th, 2015 via Weinstein boutique arm TWC-Dimension. But then again, we've waited this long.

    Alejandro Amenábar's last theatrical feature was actually Agora from 2009, made five years after The Sea Inside.
