First ‘Sightseers’ Pic Is Indeed A Sight To Behold



With Kill List topping multiple year-end lists, including Mr. Disgusting’s, all eyes are on director Ben Wheatley’s next project Sightseers.

It started shooting a few months back and now, courtesy of Empire Online, we have our first look at the film itself. In the accompanying interview, Wheatley concedes that the film will be less dark. Per Empire, “There will be kills, and there may even be a list of some kind, but Wheatley insists that this is lighter fare than his last two outings, ‘Down Terrace’ and the film that birthed the Kill List Stare. It’s not as dark as Kill List,’ Wheatley tells Empire, ‘I’d have to shoot a child in the head live on television to be darker than that, but it has the same humour and the same worldview. But it’s also quite romantic, a bit more of a love story.’

Actors Alice Lowe and Steve Oram wrote the script about a couple on a countryside caravan trip that goes wrong. “Chris (Steve Oram) wants to show Tina (Alice Lowe) his world and he wants to do it his way – on a journey through the British Isles in his beloved Abbey Oxford Caravan. Tina’s led a sheltered life and there are things that Chris needs her to see – the Crich Tramway Museum, the Ribblehead Viaduct, the Keswick Pencil Museum and the rolling countryside that separates these wonders in his life. But it doesn’t take long for the dream to fade. Litterbugs, noisy teenagers and pre-booked caravan sites, not to mention Tina’s meddling mother, soon conspire to shatter Chris’s dreams and send him, and anyone who rubs him up the wrong way, over a very jagged edge…
