After seeing both Down Terrace and Kill List, one thing is certain about director Ben Wheatley – his films are completely unpredictable.
Playlist caught up with Wheatley on the festival circuit where he revealed his next project: “We’re in prep at the moment, we start shooting in six weeks with a film called Sightseers with Big Talk,” he revealed.
To fill in some blanks, Sightseers is a dark comedy about a pair of psychotic caravaners, based on a short film, that’s set up at Film4 and Big Talk, the latter being the production company behind Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and Attack the Block, and indeed Edgar Wright will serve as executive-producer on the project. It’s written by and will star Alice Lowe and Steve Oram, two familiar faces from the U.K. comedy scene.
In addition, Wheatley is developing a bigger-budget sci-fi flick that’s still under wraps, and it sounds like it won’t be getting underway until 2013 at the earliest.
