HOLLYWOOD, California (CNN) -- The film world is buzzing with excitement over legendary director Robert Altman's next project.
Altman, famous for Nashville, Pret-a-Porter, M.A.S.H and many others, is shooting his next film in England at Shepperton Studios, Variety magazine reports.
Gosford Park, written by Julian Fellows, centres on the relations between different classes in 1930s Britain.
Shooting begins March 19 at Shepperton Studios in England where Altman will also produce the film along with Bob Balaban.
USA Films, who developed and distributed Steven Soderbergh's Traffic is in negotiations for U.S. rights to the film.
