Ben Wheatley, the director of Sightseers and Kill List, has signed on to produce body-swap thriller Whitaker, according to

The film will be the directorial debut of Jim Hosking, and will tell the story of “a maverick scientist who discovers a way to swap bodies with unwitting victims leading to terrifying consequences.” The site also gave a full plot synopsis:

“Whitaker has found a way to transfer his mind into a younger man’s body, which he uses to seduce a nurse at the hospital where he “borrows” new bodies for his experiments. Intoxicated by success and newfound vigour, he fails to note that each time he transfers, he leaves a fragment of his psyche behind in the host. This fragment starts to grow into a new personality: raw, curious, physically stronger and entirely lacking in compassion or moral compass. Soon Whitaker finds himself in a battle to the death with… himself.”

Sightseers will be released on DVD on 23 March 2013 and you can pre-order it for £13.49 from
