First Poster for Ben Wheatley's 'A Field in England' with Huge Moon
"That's no moon!" It's a giant mushroom! Wait - what? All we've seen from this so far is a photo of a guy in a field… in England, in a film called A Field in England directed by Ben Wheatley (Kill List, Sightseers). We can now add a giant moon to that list. The Film4 Blog (via The Playlist) has posted the first teaser poster for Wheatley's A Field in England, said to be about a group of English Civil War deserters who start hunting for hidden treasure in a field and come across mushrooms with the help of an alchemist. I'm still anxious to see footage, but I'm totally into this already, it sounds crazy and fun and I love this watercolor style artwork.
The very first teaser poster for Ben Wheatley's A Field in England, which is finishing filming in England:
Follows a small group of deserters fleeing from a raging battle through an overgrown field. As they are captured by O'Neil, an alchemist, they are forced to aid him in his search to find a hidden treasure he believes is buried in the field. Crossing a vast mushroom circle, which provides their first meal, the group quickly descends into a chaos of arguments, fighting and paranoia, and, as it becomes clear the treasure might be something other than gold, they slowly become victim to the terrifying energies inside the field.
A Field in England is directed by Ben Wheatley from a screenplay co-written by Wheatley and Amy Jump, also of Kill List previously. They were filming "in a beautiful field in Surrey" in November, so it's likely this will be shot and ready for release in 2013. For more updates, visit the Film4 Blog. We'll be watching for this.
