AFM: Le Pacte Boards John Boorman’s ‘Queen and Country’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Jean Labadie’s Paris-based Le Pacte has boarded “Queen and Country,” John Boorman’s sequel to his Oscar-nominated “Hope and Glory.”

Le Pacte has snatched up French distribution and international sales rights to the pic. Shingle’s head of sales, Camille Neel, will unveil the first images of the lensing at the American Film Market.

Set in 1952, the drama stars Caleb Landry Jones as an 18-year-old British man who joins the National Service and meets an amoral prankster who becomes his friend. They are assigned as instructors in a training camp while others are shipped out to fight in the Korean War.

Jones plays alongside Callum Turner, David Thewlis and Richard E. Grant.

“Country” is set 10 years after “Hope” and centers on the same characters. It’s produced by Ireland’s Spiritvale, the U.K.’s Q&C and Romania’s SC Castel, in association with British Film Institute and the Irish Film Board.

“This project is sparking great enthusiasm and curiosity from buyers who are cinephiles, in particular those from English-speaking territories,” Neel said.
