Southern Wild Director Begins Follow-Up

“Beasts of the Southern Wild” director Benh Zeitlin is heading back to Louisiana to work on his next project following in the wake of the success of that award winner at Sundance earlier this year.

The AFP reports that Zeitlin is aiming to use the same production team and cast in the new and currently untitled project.

The story is being described as a fable about a hidden ecosystem where the aging process is “out of whack” and people can age quickly or very slowly.
