“Inbetweeners” Star Helms “Bagnold Summer”

“The Inbetweeners” actor Simon Bird is set to make his feature film directorial debut on “Days of the Bagnold Summer” for Stigma Films.

An adaptation of Joff Winterhart’s graphic novel of the same name, the story is set one idle summer in the lives of a shy fifteen-year-old heavy metal fan and his librarian mother, capturing the tension, pathos and affection of a mother-son relationship.

Bird will direct from a screenplay by Lisa Owens. Matthew James Wilkinson will produce the film which is going into production this Summer.
