Hollywood star Rachel Weisz is now headed to small screen as she stars and produces the 1988 psychological thriller ‘Dead Ringers’ for Amazon.

Morgan Creek Entertainment, the company behind the original movie, is also on board.

The new series is expected to have the same feel but a different tone and also explore themes like women's health and underfunding.
