Resistance Explores Alternate WW2 End

Big Rich Films has optioned Owen Sheers’ WW2 novel “Resistance” says Variety.

Amit Gupta will write and direct the pic, which is set in an alternative 1944 where Russia has fallen to Nazi Germany and the D-Day landings have failed.

With Britain now half-occupied by German forces, the women in an isolated Welsh border valley awake one morning to discover all their husbands have mysteriously disappeared.

Richard Holmes (“Eden Lake”) will produce and co-write the script with Gupta. Filming kicks off on location in Wales next year
