A24 and Silver Reel are both reportedly bidding for the TV remake rights to Jonathan Glazer’s acclaimed 2013 film “Under the Skin”.
The plan is to turn the film into a quality prestige drama series, but it won’t be a remake – rather it’s being described as a spin-off and so obviously won’t star Scarlett Johansson’s Scottish man-hungry alien character in the lead.
Seventh Kingdom Productions, who produced the film, has gone under and so its assets are now available to be purchased by other companies – the rights to “Under the Skin” suddenly becoming available.
The film itself could easily expand on the film’s lore – going into more detail about the motorcyclist character and the alien’s overall plan. That said, a big part of the film’s appeal is that it doesn’t answer many questions and leaves much of itself a mystery.
