Wuthering Heights director Andrea Arnold to shoot US road trip film

Fish Tank director Andrea Arnold will swap the shores of Albion for the hot tarmac of the United States as she embarks on her first American-set movie this summer.

The Oscar-winning British film-maker will tout her fourth feature film to buyers at the forthcoming Cannes film festival, where she heads the critics' week jury, according to Variety. American Honey is described as a road movie about the perils and joys of young romance, in which a runaway teenager who makes a living by selling magazine subscriptions around the US finds herself wrapped up in a hard-partying, law-breaking lifestyle. .

Arnold is a Cannes favourite, having won jury prizes for both 2006's Red Road and 2009's Fish Tank. Her most recent film was a well-received adaptation of Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights.

American Honey was developed by Film4 and is receiving funds from the British production unit. No cast details have been announced.
