'American Honey' will be the British filmmaker's fourth movie, following 2006's Red Road and 2009's acclaimed Fish Tank, which both won jury prizes at Cannes Film Festival, and her 2011 version of Wuthering Heights starring Kaya Scodelario. Fish Tank also won the BAFTA Award for Outstanding British Film

The Guardian reports that Arnold will be pitching the movie to prospective buyers at this year's Cannes Film Festival, which takes place this month. Cast details have not yet been revealed, but the film has been developed by Film4 who are also providing funding.
