Ben Wheatley (Sightseers, Kill List) has his new film, A Field in England slated to be released this Friday. The feature (starring the Mighty Boosh’s Julian Barratt), is to be released in the UK with a rare simultaneous DVD, theatrical and VOD release.
Austin’s Drafthouse Films has acquired the North American distribution rights. Fingers crossed that the release date is sooner than later.
