Greenlit means a project is officially a go, so all you have to do is follow these leads to stay up to date. You never know where you’ll find an opportunity to land an audition! 

Terence Davies follows up his biopic of poet Emily Dickinson with Benediction, starring Jack Lowden (Dunkirk) as the poet Siegfried Sassoon. Famed for his unsparing and satirical descriptions of trench warfare, the film follows his acts on the battlefields where he earned the nickname “Mad Jack,” before his poetry sees him almost court-martialled by the army. Davies writes and directs the project, with production starting this spring. Casting director Lucy Rands is attached.
