Considering Terence Davies tends to take years between pictures, this next bit of news is a bit of surprise, as it seems the helmer isn't wasting any time getting to his next movie. Hot on the heels of his latest effort, the lavish and lovely "The Deep Blue Sea," starring Rachel Weisz and Tom Hiddleston, which premiered at TIFF last year, his next effort may seem him behind the camera by year's end.

Terence Davies Sunset Song

Considering Terence Davies tends to take years between pictures, this next bit of news is a bit of surprise, as it seems the helmer isn't wasting any time getting to his next movie. Hot on the heels of his latest effort, the lavish and lovely "The Deep Blue Sea," starring Rachel Weisz and Tom Hiddleston, which premiered at TIFF last year, his next effort may seem him behind the camera by year's end. 

Variety reports that Davies is set helm his long-gestating passion project "Sunset Song," an adapation of the classic Scottish novel by Lewis Grassic Gibbon. Written in 1932, the story centers on Chris Guthrie, a farmer's daughter who struggles to find love admist hardship and family dysfunction. The tough nature of the material has apparently made it a diffcult project to finance, with Davies developing it for the past decade. How dark is it? The story opens with Chris' mother committing suicide and poisoning her two babies. 

Despite not having a feature film adaptation (yet), the material has seen life on television in a BBC series and a handful of stage versions. But it looks like Davies' take will finally happen, with lensing set to take place in late 2012 or early 2013. "The Deep Blue Sea" will open in limited release on March 23rd.
