Paddy Considine is undoubtedly a man of many talents. We knew he could write and act up a storm, but with his feature film directorial debut, Tyrannosaur, in the can, and receiving such wonderful plaudits – and a BAFTA – Considine is proving he has the entire creative package. In an interview backstage at the Baftas he shed some light on his next project, The Years Of The Locust, which lies at the complete other end of the thematic spectrum.
The film will be an adaptation of the Jon Hotten book about the world of professional bodybuilding, which is set in the deep south of North America, and is based on true events. The story touches on corruption, murder, money and mayhem as it follows a sociopathic salesman turned boxing promoter, Rick ‘Elvis’ Parker, and his faithful and naive fighter, Tim Anderson.
