Sierra/Affinity To Debut Pop Star Drama VOX LUX At EFM Starring Rooney Mara

Posted February 3, 2017 by Lee Golden in News

Multiple Academy Award® Nominee Rooney Mara (Lion, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, The Social Network) will be taking to the stage this summer for the production of the new pop-star drama, Vox Lux. Sierra/Affinity will be handling international sales over in Berlin next week for the film marking writer/director Brady Corbet’s sophomore turn at the helm after winning Best Director and Best Debut Film in Venice in 2015 for The Childhood Of A Leader.

Corbet’s script, toned to an original soundtrack by 8-time Grammy Award nominated, multi-platinum selling artist, Sia, will center on Mara’s portrayal of Celeste, a singer whose 15-year journey of success, trials and tribulations – reflected in key contemporary elements – are chronicled in her life as she becomes a popular music sensation after surviving a life changing event. Tale Of Tales co-star, actress Stacy Martin, also stars.

BOLD Films is fully financing the project with BOLD’s Michel Litvak and Gary Michael Walters producing along with Christine Vachon and David Hinojosa of Killer Films, and Brian Young of Three Six Zero Entertainment. “Brady Corbet is an incredibly talented and interesting young director, and Rooney Mara is perfectly suited for this unique and provocative role.” says Litvak.

BOLD’s Svetlana Metkina and Sia will executive produce. WME Global arranged the financing for the project and will represent North American rights.
