Four Feathers

Release date: autumn/winter, date to be confirmed

Golden Globe winner Kate Hudson will team up with Heath Ledger and Wes Benntley in this 21st century remake of AEW Mason's stiff upper-lip saga of heroics and cowardice.

Based on the 1915 and 1939 versions, the film follows the story of a British soldier who resigns from his post just before a major battle and subsequently receives four white feathers from his friends and fiancee as symbols of what they believe to be his cowardice.

The film hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons earlier this year. In February, six actors and an animal handler were injured when a horse used in filming bolted from the set in Greenwich. The animal ran amok in the grounds of the Royal Naval college, near to the Cutty Sark before being calmed and brought under control.
