Some quick distribution news is coming in for our friends across the pond as Screen Daily reports that Picturehouse Entertainment, Film4 and 4DVD have struck a three-film UK distribution deal including Ben Wheatley’s highly anticipated English Civil War horror A Field in England.
Yay, someone is finally calling it a horror movie!
The English Civil War-set film stars Michael Smiley (Kill List), Peter Ferdinando (Tony), Reece Shearsmith (The League of Gentlemen), Julian Barratt (The Mighty Boosh), Richard Glover (Sightseers) and Ryan Pope (Ideal).
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.
