The British company Big Rich Films has optioned Owen Sheers' alternate-universe World War II novel Resistance for the big screen, Variety reported. Amit Gupta will write and direct the movie, which is set in an alternate 1944 in which Russia has fallen to Nazi Germany and the D-Day landings have failed. With Britain now half-occupied by German forces, the women in an isolated Welsh border valley awake one morning to discover all their husbands have mysteriously disappeared. Richard Holmes (Eden Lake) will produce the project, while Sheers will co-write the script with Gupta.
