Three lovely British actresses, Emily Watson, Anna Friel, and Lena Headey have signed on to star in The PoisonersTHR describes The Poisoners as “a dark comedy about women left behind in an English farming community during World War I who become involved with several German prisoners-of-war.”  I am intrigued by the logline—or really anything that can be pitched as a dark war comedy—especially with such a winning cast.  Ken Duken, Hanno Koffler, and Alexander Scheer co-star, presumably as the German POWs.  Jon Amiel (Creation) will direct from a script by Paul BillingJeanna Polley is producing through her aptly named company The Producers.  Filming begins this summer in Ireland in Germany.
