Oliver Hermanus will direct film, based on a short story of the same name by Ben Shattuck, and said:

 

“I instantly fell in love with Ben Shattuck’s flawlessly beautiful short story and knew I had to be involved in its journey to the screen”.

“Paul and Josh are two of the most promising actors of their generation who will share with us deeply soulful performances.”

“This is an unexpected love story that needs to be told — it is a journey through the life of America, across the 20th century and the traditions of American folk music, all seen through the bond between two men immersed in the history of sound”, Hermanus continued.

“This undeniably powerful story will certainly resonate with audiences the world over.”

 

Production is due to start in Summer 2022.
