Great World of Sound director Craig Zobel is gearing up to direct his next feature film, entitled Turkey in the Straw. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Plum Pictures will be producing the upcoming project.

The film will follow the race for county commissioner in a small town. The story takes an unexpected turn when one of the candidates shoots the other in cold blood. It has been described as a dark comedy that takes place in the South.

Zobel is directing from his own script, which he co-wrote with Barlow Jacobs. Shooting will take place in South Carolina early next year.
