David Constantine story to be made into a Major New Film

Film Four have this week released details of a new feature film adaptation of the short story ‘In Another Country’ by award-winning Comma Press author David Constantine.

The story, featured in David's 2009 collection Under the Dam, tells of an ageing couple whose domestic routines are interrupted by the discovery of a frozen woman's body, trapped beneath the ice of the Swiss Alps. The film will star Charlotte Rampling and Sir Tom Courtenay as the two protagonists.

Andrew Haigh is once again teaming up with Weekend 's producer Tristan Goligher, alongside an impressive team of creatives who have between them worked on the films Berberian Sound StudioWeekend and Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.

David has three short story collections with Comma: Under the Dam (2005) The Shieling (2009) and most recently, Tea at the Midland (2013). He was the winner of the 2013 Frank O'Connor International Short Fiction Award and The 2010 BBC National Short Story Award.
