AFM 2012: Protagonist Issues a Kill Command and Sends Ben Wheatley to A Field in EnglandHere’s the thing about AFM… hundreds of films are shopped and announced there, and who knows whether or not we’ll ever get to see them. That being said, we’re pretty sure given the talent involved, at least one of the following will definitely happen.

According to Screen Daily, Protagonist Pictures will be handling sales for two projects at AFM. The first, Kill Command, is to be written and directed by Steve Gomez. “The near-future set film will follow an elite army unit involved in a fight to the death after it is helicoptered to a remote island training facility where the US Defense Department creates robot weapons.” The film will shoot in the spring of next year.

Protagonist is also doing pre-sales for Kill List and Sightseers director Ben Wheatley’s A Field in England. “In the war-torn English countryside in 1648, a small group of deserters flee the raging battle through an overgrown field. They are captured and forced to help one of their captors in his search to find hidden treasure he believes is buried in the field. The group descends into a chaos of arguments, fighting, and paranoia, and as it becomes clear that the treasure might be something other than gold, they gradually become victim to the terrifying energies trapped inside the field.”

More on hopefully both of these soon.
