Elysian Film Group announces WENDY, writer/director Benh Zeitlin’s follow up to his critically acclaimed, Oscar nominated film Beasts of The Southern Wild, to be released in UK and Irish cinemas on 13 August 2021.
The classic story of Peter Pan is wildly reimagined in this ragtag epic starring a stunning cast of young actors, headlined by Devin France in the title role of Wendy. The film is directed by Benh Zeitlin and written by Benh and his sister Eliza Zeitlin. The producers are Becky Glupczynski (Maria Full of Grace), Dan Janvey (Nomadland), Paul Mezey (Maria Full of Grace) and Josh Penn (Monsters and Men), who all collaborated previously with Zeitlin on Beasts of The Southern Wild.
Lost on a mysterious island where ageing and time have come unglued, Wendy must fight to save her family, her freedom, and the joyous spirit of youth from the deadly peril of growing up.
Screener available on request.
PRESS SCREENING ON THURSDAY 5 AUGUST AT 3.30PM
