Ben Wheatley is one of the most inventive directors making films right now. From family crime drama Down Terrace through horror hit Kill List, my personal favourite Sightseers and psychological Civil War thriller A Field In England, he has an astonishingly high level of quality and originality. Mr Wheatley currently has two films in the works; an adaptation of J.G. Ballard’s novel High Rise is to be released later this year, but here are some photos from pre-production and during filming of Free Fire, written by Wheatley and Amy Jump and produced by none other than Martin Scorsese himself.
In the film an arms deal goes wrong, leading to a shootout and game of survival. With a cast including Luke Evans, Armie Hammer, Cillian Murphy, Olivia Wilde, Brie Larson, Sam Riley, Michael Smiley & Noah Taylor, there is every reason to believe it will be quite the explosion when it hits screens hopefully in 2016. The photos have been tweeted from the set & locations of the film by Wheatley, his supremely talented Director of Photography Laurie Rose and other cast and crew members. Many of these are not of material from the film itself, so for now just enjoy their aesthetic allure and look forward to two Wheatley wonders in the year ahead.
