After working together on the massive Star Wars: The Force Awakens Daisy Ridley and director J.J. Abrams will reunite again, despite their busy schedules. Ridley, who has Star Wars: Episode VIII on her plate reprising her role as "Rey," recently confirmed she's in talks to play Lara Croft, previously played by Angelina Jolie, in a Tomb Raider reboot. Besides being busy fueling theories about Rey's parents J.J. Abrams recently spitballed an idea for a TV series with Chris Rock. In case you didn't know, Abrams is not directing Episode VIII;Rian Johnson is taking over the helm.
Ridley and Abrams are set to team up again for Kolma, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Ridley is being eyed for the lead in Kolma while Abrams is going to produce the film described by THR as a "fantasy thriller." Should Ridley be cast this would mark the first role for her outside of the Star Wars galaxy.
THR writes Kolma is based on Israel’s 2003 TV movie All I've Got (Kol Ma She'Yesh Li). In the movie a 22-year-old woman suffers a car accident that kills her boyfriend. At the end of the woman's life she is given the option (don't ask how) to either return to the day of the accident and her 22-year-old self or "being reunited with her love" according to THR.
Ridley immediately became a fan favorite with her role in The Force Awakens. That magic will probably repeat itself again here with her and Abrams joining forces.
