Wheatley told Bloody back in February: “It’s like “Hill Street Blues” vs. Monsters. But it’s like 15 million [budget] so it’s quite big. That’s our first kind of American film as well. We’re hoping to start it in the beginning of next year, all things being equal.”
The project is likely to shoot in spring 2013.
These are among a busy slate of diverse projects at Film4, which has a banner Cannes this year with both Sightseers and On The Road premiering tonight. Wheatley is also preparing another feature, I, Macrobane.
