Character actor Paddy Considine (“Hot Fuzz,” “The Bourne Ultimatum”) is in Sundance this week promoting his directorial debut feature “Tyrannosaur”. Yet he’s already looking to the future, and tells Total Film that his next project will be “The Leaning”.
The story follows a “young woman haunted by a childhood trauma who in adult life struggles to form meaningful relationships. Every time she gets close to somebody she feels this presence” says Considine.
Considine plans to start writing the film soon and will shoot it in the UK. Tone-wise he’s aiming for something along the lines of “The Exorcist” in terms of the mother-daughter dynamic.
