Ben Wheatley And Jim Hosking Join Forces For Gothic Horror WHITAKER
Regular readers will also be well aware the high regard we have for one Ben Wheatley, the iconoclastic director of Down Terrace, Kill List, Sightseers and the upcoming A Field In England. Wheatley is also a weird one in the best possible way, which is why I thought to myself a while back "Hey, these guys should know each other." So I introduced them. And in a positively bizarre example of things working out as well as humanly possible, Hosking and Wheatley have joined forces for the upcoming Whitaker.
Salt launches gothic horror Whitaker, the second film from the Metrodome slate. Produced by Andrew Starke of Rook Films, Ben Wheatley will EP. Whitaker - a maverick scientist, discovers a way to swap bodies with unwitting victims leading to terrifying consequences.
Helmed by award winning commercials director Jim Hosking, described by Metrodome's Jezz Vernon as "a unique and outrageous talent, the type you don't stumble upon very often, we are beyond excited to be working with him.
Film is currently casting for a June shoot.
This should be exceptional. The brand new artwork - just launched at the European Film Market - certainly is. Check out Hosking's Renegades along with one of my personal favorites of his commercial work below.
