Swedish actor David Dencik is set to star in The Weinstein Co’s “Regression”.
Emma Watson and Ethan Hawke are already attached to star in the thriller which is being written and directed by Alejandro Amenabar.
Set in a Minnesota town, Dencik plays a man who is arrested for sexually abusing his daughter, a crime he has no memory of. With the help of a psychologist, he unravels a memory that implicates a police officer (Hawke). However other townspeople begin to uncover their own suppressed memories, all pointing to horrific abuse, prompting the officer to discover a national supernatural conspiracy.
Dencik recently starred in “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy” and appeared in “The Kidnapping of Freddy Heinekin” opposite Anthony Hopkins and Sam Worthington. He also acted alongside Meryl Streep and Hilary Swank in “The Homesman”.
