CANNES — Ken Loach, whose “The Wind That Shakes the Barley” screened Thursday in the Cannes competition, will make his next movie, “These Times,” with FilmFour.
The film will be broadcast on Channel 4 simultaneously with the U.K. theatrical release.
“This will be a new release pattern for us and looks promising,” Loach commented.
Written by Loach’s longtime collaborator Paul Laverty, project is described only as a contemporary British story.
FilmFour will co-finance the movie, produced by Rebecca O’Brien. Shooting will start this fall, on location near London and in Scotland.
