LONDON – Ben Wheatley’s third big screen outing, Sightseers, stars Alice Lowe and Steve Oram and is written by the duo themselves.

Lowe’s acting resume boasts a star turn in Sky Atlantic’s This Is Jinsy while Oram’s C.V. boasts a run in the cult British comedy The Mighty Boosh.
The movie starts shooting this week and is produced by Nira Park of Big Talk Pictures, and Claire Jones and Andy Starke of Rook Films. Exec producers are Danny Perkins and Jenny Borgars of Studiocanal, Matthew Justice of Big Talk and Katherine Butler of Film4.
Wheatley's debut was Down Terrace while his sophomore effort
