‘Ammonite’ and ‘God’s Own Country’ filmmaker is set to reunite with Josh O’Connor on a new horror project.
Thanks to an in-depth profile piece on Lee, Esquire, wrangled out of the director the news on his latest project which is said to be an adaptation of a novel, the name of which he is keeping tight-lipped about.
Lee described the story as a “20th century-set horror movie with strong elements of ‘class and queerness’, about a sad young man alone in an epic wilderness.”

O’Connor made his big breakthrough in Lee’s ‘God’s Own Country’ which told the story of the struggling sheep farmer Johnny Saxby who not only has to deal with living with his grandmother and sickly father by numbing his frustrations with drinking and casual sex until a Romanian migrant worker sets him on a new path.
O’Connor has since gone on to star as a young Prince Charles in Netflix series ‘The Crown’, starred opposite Anya Taylor-Joy in Autumn de Wilde’s ‘Emma’ and most recently starred in the TV movie of ‘Romeo and Juliet’ alongside Jessie Buckley. He has recently wrapped filming on ‘Mothering Sunday’ with his ‘The Crown’ co-star, Olivia Colman.
