Long-gestating adaptation moving forward.

‘The Deep Blue Sea’ director Terence Davies’ long awaited adaptation of Lewis Grassic Gibbon’s classic Scottish novel ‘Sunset Song’ is finally moving forward.

Screen Daily reports that the adaptation has gained financial backing from Hurricane Films and Götafilm, and is due to begin lensing this winter in Scotland and Pavelund, Sweden.

Based on Gibbon’s 1932 novel, the story follows a proud young woman and her bittersweet relationship with the oppressive landscapes and Highland crofting culture in which she was born.

Casting is now underway.
