The 1917 and Last Night in Soho writer Krysty Wilson-Cairns will be developing future projects with Universal.

Universal, it seems, is keen to be in the Krysty Wilson-Cairns business. The screenwriter is coming off the back of two highly-touted projects, having co-written the WWI epic 1917 alongside Sam Mendes, whilst also penning Last Night In Soho with its director, Edgar Wright.

The studio has signed a two-year film deal with Great Company, Wilson-Cairn’s production banner that she runs alongside Jack Ivins, a former assistant to Guy Ritchie. Wilson-Cairns already enjoys an established relationship with Universal as it backed Last Night In Soho, which releases in cinemas this week.

We’re certainly interested to see what the duo come up with next. The pair have released a statement that reads: ‘At Great Company, our mission in life is to work with the very best (it’s kinda in the name.) At Universal we find ourselves in the greatest company ever. We got into this business as our favourite films and filmmakers have come from Universal, and we look forward to contributing to their already stellar canon. Donna Langley and Peter Cramer have long been champions, and to make this place our home is a dream come true.’

With Universal’s support, and a brace of films behind them that have certainly fired the imagination, there’ll be a fair degree of anticipation preceding the Great Company’s next announcement. We’ll let you know more as we find it out.
