Rebecca Hall's Star-Studded Directorial Debut 'Passing' Goes to Netflix in Big Sundance Deal

Big news for Rebecca Hall!

It has been reported that Netflix is nearing a $16 million deal to buy the 38-year-old actress’ directorial debut movie Passing, according to Deadline.

The movie, which stars Tessa Thompson and Ruth Negga, made headlines as one of the best movies to premiere during the 2021 Sundance Film Festival.

Here’s the synopsis for Passing: “Set amid the Harlem Renaissance, Irene (Thompson) and Clare (Negga) are two mixed race women, and childhood friends, who reunite in their adulthood, discovering that they now live on two different sides of the color line, with Clare ‘passing’ as white. As the two women’s lives become more intertwined, the narrative turns inward, giving a look into the complicated nature of racial identity and how we’re all are impacted by how the world sees us.”

André Holland, Alexander Skarsgård and Bill Camp also star in Passing, which is based on the 1929 novella written by Nella Larsen.

As of right now, Passing does not have a release date.
