First Poster For A Field In England
Ben Wheatley's trippy Civil War opus

Ben Wheatley is not a man to rest on his laurels, even when they're as full and bushy as they are for his terrific black comedy, Sightseers. The Brighton-based filmmaker already has his next film, A Field In England, in the can after a two-week shoot in Surrey last month. It's got a new poster which you can see below.


Co-written by Wheatley and Amy Jump, A Field In England it set in the aftermath of a English Civil War battle. A posse of deserters are escaping the carnage when they're seized by a treasure-hunting alchemist and compelled to help him hunt for gold. Unfortunately, the motley crew have a culinary encounter with a crop of magic mushrooms and everything turns seriously Dumbo on them.

Plunged into all this paranoia and mayhem are Julian Barratt, Reece Shearsmith and Wheatley's old Kill Lister Michael Smiley. Shot in black-and-white, and, according to the director, likely to be firmly 18-rated, A Field In England will be in our cinemas in 2013 (or MMXIII, for Latin speakers).

After being slightly underwhelmed
by Sightseers - which would have worked better as a short. I `m hoping Wheatley returns to the gut wrenching,head feking, brilliant form of Kill List with this. Julian Barrat is inspired casting. Can`t wait! More
