Michael WinterbottomBritish director Michael Winterbottom is going to the 'Promised Land,' which is not always such a pretty place, and he's taking fellow-Brit actor Jim Sturgess with him.

Variety reports that the hip filmmaker ('24 Hour Party People') has chosen 'Promised Land' as his next feature project; the film focuses on the events that led up the 1948 partitioning of Palestine, and the creation of the state of Israel.
