“We Need To Talk About Kevin” and “You Were Never Really Here” helmer Lynne Ramsey plans to make her next film much quicker than the seven-year gap between her last two movies.
Speaking to the British Independent Film Awards website, where ‘Here’ has eight nominations, the Scottish director says she’s looking to direct her first original script since 1999’s “Ratcatcher” and it’s a story of eco-horror:
“I wrote 160 pages of a script just after doing all the press for ‘You Were Never Really Here’ because it’s hard to keep talking about the same films. But I was really inspired by making [that] film, so I’ve started writing this epic environmental horror thing. I don’t know what it is yet, I just kept writing and didn’t look back.
I don’t want [to leave] a big gap. I don’t really take time off, it’s just that some things have worked out and some things haven’t. It’s just the nature of the beast, really, but you learn something from all of them, even if they don’t work out.”
Ramsay revealed that she’s working on a few other projects but all are just in the writing process at the moment. Ramsay famously departed the western “Jane Got a Gun” due to creative and budgetary issues in 2013.
