Anything the Americans do, we British can do… er… a bit the same. And now Ken Loach is going all Steven Soderbergh on the world by planning to release his next film simultaneously on Channel 4 and in cinemas.

The director is in Cannes promoting his latest effort, The Wind That Shakes The Barley, which is in competition. He announced at a press conference that he’ll next work on These Times, “a contemporary story set in Britain.”

The film will be written by regular Loach collaborator Paul Laverty and starts shooting this autumn in Scotland. Film Four are handling the release and sound delighted to be working with the director again.

"Ken Loach is a filmmaker who has never compromised his vision," Channel 4 commissioning editor Liza Marshall told The Hollywood Reporter. "We hope this new project will be just the kind of urgent, questioning and passionate film Channel 4 is proud to make."
