    Jennifer Kent's The Nightingale

    Really early yet, but here's some news about what the director of The Babadook is up to next.

    Source.

    "Kent will next direct The Nightingale from her own script. Set in Tasmania in 1825, The Nightingale follows a 21-year-old Irish female convict who witnesses the brutal murder of her husband and baby by her soldier master and his cronies. Unable to find justice, she takes an Aboriginal male tracker with her through the hellish wilderness to seek revenge on the men.

    Bron Creative will executive produce and co-finance the period thriller, says Variety, which stars Sam Claflin and Aisling Franciosi, with Damon Herriman (Quarry), Ewen Leslie, Harry Greenwood (Hacksaw Ridge), Aboriginal Djuki Mala dancer Baykali Ganambarr and East Arnhem Land indigenous model Magnolia Maymuru.

    Production stars this month in Tasmania, Australia."

    Also it looks like there were some walkouts when this played at the Sydney Film Festival.

    As someone not intimately familiar with the hiostorical background of this film, my purchasing decision will depend on which release provides the better special features.

    Just wanted to mention that this is on Hulu now.
    VHS will never die!
