Cannon Films Ltd Acquires The Field

The long gestated horror movie moves to Cannon Films Ltd for development

Today, Cannon Films Ltd announces its acquisition of horror movie concept, The Field from Dream Peak Entertainment.

The film was originally announced as a 3D feature in 2010, with writers Philip Steppling and Iain Burgess attached, but progress stalled and the project was officially cancelled in 2015. Cannon Films Ltd executives Richard Albiston and Suzanne Howarth have both previously been attached to the project as executive producers prior to its cancellation.

The film centres on a married couple who meet with danger after breaking down on a remote highway; however, the screenplays by Steppling and Burgess have not been included in Cannon Films Ltd’s acquisition of the property. No new screenwriter has yet been attached to the project.

“We’re extremely excited about this project and are eager to finally get it underway,” says James Lattimore, “The Field has the potential to be a standout addition to this classic genre.”

James Lattimore and Naomi Stromire will oversee the project at Cannon Films Ltd. The film will be made in conjunction with Barbary Shore Pictures.
