Terence Davies Adapting “Sunset Song”

“The Deep Blue Sea” and “House of Mirth” director Terence Davies’ long gestating adaptation of Lewis Grassic Gibbon’s classic 1932 Scottish novel “Sunset Song” is finally getting underway says Screen Daily.

The story follows a proud young woman and her bittersweet relationship with the oppressive landscapes and Highland crofting culture in which she was born.

Hurricane Films and Gotafilm have come onboard the project which will begin shooting this winter in Scotland and Pavelund, Sweden. Sol Papadopoulos and Roy Boulter will produce.

Casting is currently underway. Hurricane produced Davies’ documentary “Of Time And The City”.
