Warner Bros. has added a new film to their 2021 theatrical slate: the action thriller Reminiscence, starring Hugh Jackman and Rebecca Ferguson. The film is the feature directorial debut of Lisa Joy, who also penned the script. Joy is a writer and executive producer on HBO’s “Westworld,” where she collaborates with Jonathan Nolan, one of Reminiscence‘s producers (along with Joy, Michael De Luca, and Aaron Ryder).
Internationally, Reminiscence‘s rollout will begin on August 25, 2021.
Warner Bros.’ official description of the film is as follows:
Nick Bannister (Hugh Jackman), a private investigator of the mind, navigates the darkly alluring world of the past by helping his clients access lost memories. Living on the fringes of the sunken Miami coast, his life is forever changed when he takes on a new client, Mae (Rebecca Ferguson). A simple matter of lost and found becomes a dangerous obsession. As Bannister fights to find the truth about Mae’s disappearance, he uncovers a violent conspiracy, and must ultimately answer the question: how far would you go to hold on to the ones you love?
Star Hugh Jackman has provided a first glimpse at footage from the film:
As part of Warner Bros.’ 2021 slate, Reminiscence will debut simultaneously in theaters and on HBO Max.
