and several hit British television shows including Sherlock, Peaky Blinders, Doctor Who and The Tudors. Mike Carey adapted the screenplay from his bestselling novel The Girl with all the Gifts. The film follows Melanie, a girl who is full of questions about the world. Every morning, Melanie waits in her cell to be collected for class. When they come for her, Sergeant Parks keeps his gun pointing at her while two of his people strap her into a wheelchair. She thinks they don’t like her. She jokes that she won’t bite. But they don’t laugh.

). The feature has been developed with the support of the BFI Film Fund.

Lamont said, “Melanie’s story is a completely unique take on a much loved genre, seamlessly blending together a lonely child’s search for love and family with a terrifying journey where she controls the fate of the last adult humans on earth.”

Will Clarke, Co-CEO and Chairman of Altitude Film Entertainment said, “She Who Brings Gifts is a smart take on the sci-fi genre and with a humanity which will draw a young adult audience and those already aware of Mike Carey’s best-selling novel. With the great cast that has come on board we have a highly commercial film, which can cut through to a broad audience.”
