Picturehouse Entertainment, Film4 and 4DVD have struck a three-film UK distribution deal comprising Ben Wheatley’s anticipated Film4.0 English civil war horror A Field in England, reports Screen Daily. What’s nice about the announcement is that is confirms that the film, from the director of Kill List and Sightseers, is actually horror.
Wheatley’s psychedelic English civil war film, about a group of deserters who fall prey to terrifying energies trapped inside a field, is co-written with regular collaborator Amy Jump, and stars Michael Smiley, Reece Shearsmith and Julian Barratt. Producers are Claire Jones and Andy Starke of Rook Films, with Anna Higgs as executive producer for Film4.
“The film follows a small group of deserters fleeing from a raging battle through an overgrown field. As they are captured by O’Neil, an alchemist, they are forced to aid him in his search to find a hidden treasure that he believes is buried in the field.
Crossing a vast mushroom circle, which provides their first meal, the group quickly descend into a chaos of arguments, fighting and paranoia, and, as it becomes clear that the treasure might be something other than gold, they slowly become victim to the terrifying energies trapped inside the field.“
