The Babadook director Jennifer Kent's The Nightingale begins production

Back when THE BABADOOK first hit a few years back, writer/director Jennifer Kent landed on many "must-watch directors" lists. And for good reason too. THE BABADOOK was at once a terrifying psychological horror flick, and at the same time a pretty damn powerful metaphor for "losing your sh*t", and fighting back the demons within.

It is with this is mind I am really looking forward to Kent's new flick THE NIGHTINGALE. The film is period flick about a female convict whose husband is murdered and joins forces with an tracker to hunt down the men responsible. Sounds like a western. Sounds like good f*cking times to me!

Bron Creative will executive produce and co-finance the film.

THE NIGHTINGALE synopsis:

Set in Tasmania in 1825, THE NIGHTINGALE follows a beautiful 21-year-old Irish female convict who witnesses the brutal murder of her husband and baby by her soldier master and his cronies. Unable to find justice, she takes an Aboriginal male tracker with her through the hellish wilderness to seek revenge on the men, and gets much more than she bargained for.

THE NIGHTINGALE will star Aisling Franciosi (see below), Sam Claflin, Damon Herriman, Ewen Leslie, Harry Greenwood, Baykali Ganambarr and Magnolia Maymuru.

THE NIGHTINGALE begins production in March in Tasmania, Australia.

Extra Tidbit: THE BABADOOK is an anagram for "The Bad Book"
