Oscar-winner Steve McQueen will be writing, directing, and producing an original film called Blitz. He will reunite with New Regency, who made two of his previous films, 2013’s 12 Years a Slave and 2018’s Widows. McQueen’s own production company, Lammas Park, will also produce the film alongside Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner from Working Title Films.
This film marks McQueen’s first feature since Widows. Meanwhile, he directed, wrote, and produced 2020’s Small Axe, the five-part anthology series for Prime Video, starring Letitia Wright, John Boyega and Shaun Parkes. He has also co-directed and produced three documentaries, Black Power: A British Story of Resistance, Subnormal: A British Scandal, and Uprising for Amazon Prime Video.
The details of the film’s plot have been kept under wraps. There are also no updates about the release date, cast, or crew.
