God's Own Country director lines up film
God’s Own Country director Francis Lee is lining up his next feature project, Ammonite.
Lee (pictured) will be calling the shots on the 19th century period drama from his own screenplay.
It is his second full-length film – his debut, God’s Own Country, opened to critical acclaim in 2017 and won a plethora of international awards, including the world cinema directing award at the Sundance Film Festival, where it was the only UK production to feature in the world drama category.
The feature followed a young Yorkshire farmer whose life changed with the arrival of a Romanian migrant worker.
The film also took home four gongs out of a total of ten nominations at last year’s prestigious British Independent Film Awards.
