Beyond Films have announced at the Cannes Film Festival details of their upcoming feature adaptation of Robin Jenkins novel ‘The Cone Gatherer’ with Samson Films’ David Collins to produce and Pat O'Connor to direct.

The £4.8m production will star Scottish actor Dougray Scott (Enigma, Mission Impossible 2) in the lead role. Adapted for the screen by Bernard MacLaverty (Lamb, Cal), the film is to be a thriller revolving around two conscientious objectors in the Second World War who are sent to work on an Argyll estate. Irish producer David Collins owns Samson Films and has a wide range of production credits that include the soon to be released 'Asylum' and critical hit 'Blind Flight'. Irishman Pat O'Connor is an experienced and highly regarded director who has helmed 'Sweet November' and 'Dancing at Lughnasa'.

Actress Emily Watson (Gosford Park, Angela's Ashes) is also said to be in line for a part in the film. Production is scheduled for an autumn shoot in Scotland.
