The Flight of the Falcon


The Flight of the Falcon soars in this adaptation of Daphne du Maurier’s critically lauded novel.

‘The Flight of the Falcon’ is an undeservedly ‘forgotten’ novel by the acclaimed author Daphne du Maurier. Her work has been transformed into such illustrious films and television series as ‘Rebecca’, ‘Don’t Look Now’, ‘My Cousin Rachel’ and the avian dystopia ‘The Birds’. All are beloved tributes to her haunting dreams. ‘The Flight of the Falcon’ will join their ranks as a world class interpretation of her novel, with a screenplay by Christopher Villiers, making the Puglia landscape as iconic as the Cornish coast in ‘Jamaica Inn’.

A mysterious and fascinating exploration of life, love and death in the stunningly beautiful southern Italian town of Ruffano, known for its international university. All seems picture postcard perfect until scratching beneath the surface uncovers the dark and twisted history of the Dukes who ruled the area some four hundred years before.

Currently in active development. Further announcements for ‘The Flight of the Falcon’ will be made soon.
