Lee Daniels, fresh from his Sundance triumph as director of multiple prize-winner Push: Based On The Novel By Sapphire, is teaming up with Chilean film-maker Sebastian Silva, whose film The Maid won the world cinema dramatic grand jury prize at Sundance, to produce Silva's next film Second Child.

Daniels is here raising finance for the project which was written by Silva and follows an eight-year-old boy as he seeks affection and acceptance during the course of a family vacation to a country home.

Alienated from other children and his parents, he finds himself drawn to his charismatic grandfather and the home's African-American caretaker, with whom he shares a secret.

Second Child will be the next production for both Daniels and Silva.
