“Rams” Gets A UK-Australian Remake

UK’s WestEnd Films and Australia’s WBMC have announced plans to team up for an Australian-shot, English-language remake of Icelandic dark comedy hit “Rams”.

The original, which won Un Certain Regard’s top prize at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival, follows two long-estranged brothers in a remote valley who must reconcile in order to save their sheep.

Jules Duncan will pen the remake which will shoot in Western Australia. Both companies are also developing an adaptation of Adele Dumont’s asylum-seeker memoir “No Man Is an Island”.
