UK political thriller from Brooklyn producers
A tense political thriller from the makers of Brooklyn is currently in development.
Reason of State is a forthcoming feature film from screenwriter Matthew Orton, one of Screen International’s ‘Stars of Tomorrow’ in 2015, and centres on a period of just 24 hours behind the closed door of 10 Downing Street.
Shoot dates have yet to be confirmed on the original feature commission, which is produced by Amanda Posey and Finola Dwyer of Wildgaze Films, Teddy Schwarzman and Ben Stillman of Black Bear Pictures and Bennett McGhee of Silvertown Films.
Wildgaze is currently in post on We Happy Few (filmed as Their Finest Hour and a Half) and is also developing a TV version of Brooklyn.
