Andrew Lauren Productions to Produce, Finance Claire Denis' HIGH LIFE Starring Robert Pattinson, Patricia Arquette, Mia Goth12:14 AM
Andrew Lauren Productions (ALP) has partnered with Alcatraz Films, Pandora Film Produktion, The Apocalypse Films and Madants to produce and finance "High Life,” the English-language debut of acclaimed French filmmaker Claire Denis.
Andrew Lauren and partner D.J. Gugenheim will produce for ALP, Laurence Clerc & Olivier Thery-Lapiney for Alcatraz, Claudia Steffen & Christoph Friedel for Pandora, and Oliver Dungey for Apocalypse.
Lauren said, “My family first turned me on to Claire Denis when they showed me “Beau Travail” and I’ve been a huge admirer of her work ever since. It’s very exciting to have Claire bring her ability to challenge how we think about the human condition and her unique visual style to the science fiction genre for the first time."“High Life” is being scored by British musician Stuart Staples of Tindersticks, who has worked with Denis on numerous projects.
By coming on to “High Life,” ALP moves towards its goal of producing and financing a robust and eclectic slate focused on commercial and elevated filmmaker-driven stories. ALP is currently in development on “The Shower,” which is set up with Warner Bros. as well as two as-yet-untitled projects written by Taylor Sheridan.
CAA brokered the deal and will represent the film's U.S. distribution rights. ALP is represented by attorney David Boyle.
