'Jimmy Hall' to be Ken Loach's last film

9 August 2013 5:59 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Ken Loach will retire from making feature-length films after he completes his latest project Jimmy Hall.

According to Loach's long-time producer Rebecca O'Brien, the critically-acclaimed director is "unlikely" to continue making films for the big screen, but will still direct documentaries and TV programmes.

"This is probably the last narrative feature for Ken," O'Brien told Screen Daily.

"There are a few documentary ideas kicking around, and that will probably be the way to go, but this is a serious period drama with a lot of moving parts so it's a big thing to put together. I think we should go out while we're on top."

She continued: "It's such a huge operation and Ken doesn't sit in a director's chair, telling people what to do; he runs around. It requires a lot of physical and mental stamina. Realistically, I'd be very surprised if we made another feature after this one. »
