Andrea-Arnold-Dishes-Up-American-Honey

If people think a magazine’s editorial team are out all the time partying and whooping it up, they’d probably be bitterly disappointed to learn the truth that we mostly just sit around in jumpers and drink tea. But the sales team? That’s another story, and one that will be told by Fish Tank/Wuthering Heights director Andrea Arnold, who is heading to the States to shoot her next film, now titled American Honey.

In fact, Arnold has already made several trips across the pond, to conduct research by immersing herself with a real life magazine sales team. It’s a wonder she’s still around to make the film. Yet survive she has, and American Honey will focus on an Almost Famous-style story of a teenage girl who joins such a team and is plunged into the world of parties, law-bending and young love.

While the director, who also wrote the script for this one, has previously stayed in the UK for her films, this will be shot in the States. She’s searching for a cast even as she readies herself to lead the jury at this year’s Cannes Critics’ Week.
