Film4 has announced a development deal with Under The Skin director Jonathan Glazer, continuing its longstanding relationship with the acclaimed British filmmaker.
David Kosse, Director of Film4, says: “Jonathan is one of the most visionary directors in the world, let alone the UK. He epitomises Film4’s ethos of ground-breaking, distinctive, authored film, and I’m looking forward to continuing what has already been a close and collaborative relationship between him and Film4.”
Film4 and Glazer’s most recent film Under The Skin was heralded “a masterpiece” by critics, named the Best Film of 2014 by The Guardian, and is nominated for Outstanding British Film at this year’s BAFTAs.
Film4 previously collaborated with Glazer on Sexy Beast, his directorial debut in 2000 which has since achieved iconic British film status.
Glazer is currently working on a number of development ideas with Film4 alongside his Under The Skin producer Jim Wilson.
