Brady Corbet, the director of recent musical drama Vox Lux, has detailed artist drama The Brutalist as his next project.
His recent film, which stars Natalie Portman as its lead, is only Corbet’s second feature film and Vox Lux went down with positive reviews following the world premiere in Venice recently.
However, not resting on his laurels, Corbet has already outlined his third project and it comes in the shape of The Brutalist. The film details 30 years in the life of one artist’s and his vision. With ALP developing the script, the film opens on 1947, as a Hungarian-born Jewish architect emigrates to the United States.
Tales of Initially early poverty set up the premise before the artist goes on to win a contract that will change the course of his life. The film will be produced by Andrew Lauren and D.J. Gugenheim.
“I am thrilled to collaborate for the second time with everyone at Andrew Lauren Productions,” Corbet said in a press release. “ALP’s vision for the future of the medium is unique and uniquely ambitious; the ideal partners to bring this epic story to life.”
ALP chairman Andrew Lauren added, “We had such an incredible experience working with our good friend Brady on Vox Lux that it was only natural and fitting to collaborate with him on his next film. He is a phenomenal filmmaker with a brilliant career ahead of him.”
