The first poster has been released for director Ben Wheatley's trippy sounding English Civil War film A Field in England. Wheatley is the same director that brought us the twisted movies Kill List and Sightseers. This next film has been described as "a psychedelic trip into magic and madness." So you can bet it going to end up being just as crazy as his other films, only this is set in 1648.
The story follows a small group of deserters "fleeing from a raging battle through an overgrown field. They are captured by two men: O’Neil and Cutler. O’Neil (Michael Smiley), an alchemist, forces the group to aid him in his search to find a hidden treasure that he believes is buried in the field. Crossing a vast mushroom circle, which provides their first meal, the group quickly descend into a chaos of arguments, fighting and paranoia, and, as it becomes clear that the treasure might be something other than gold, they slowly become victim to the terrifying energies trapped inside the field."
The movie stars Michael Smiley (Kill List), Peter Ferdinando, Reece Shearsmith (The League of Gentlemen), Julian Barratt (The Mighty Boosh), Richard Clover (Wheatley's Sightseers) and Ryan Pope.
As a fan of Wheatley's previous work I'm very much looking forward to seeing how this story plays out! I have no doubt it will be a fun and interesting movie going experience.
