Room director Lenny Abrahamson announces tense new WAR movie


After the huge success of Room, Lenny Abrahamson has announced the next movie he is going to direct – and it sounds pretty brilliant.

The Dublin man is taking on Neal Bascomb's upcoming book The Grand Escape.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Grand Escape is a true story that focuses on three World War I pilots that are trapped in Germany's infamous POW prison.

It will follow the war's most elaborate prison escape as well as the three men's fight for freedom.

The picture is going to be brought to the big screen and produced by Element Pictures, the same company that worked on Room with Lenny.

We know it's going to be a while away, but this sounds very promising.
