Glazer will give ‘Birth’ for Regency

Fox Searchlight to distrib psychological thriller

Arnon Milchan’s Fox-based Regency Enterprises has greenlit the Jonathan Glazer and Jean-Claude Carriere script “Birth” with Nicole Kidman near a deal to star.

Glazer will direct. Fox Searchlight will distribute the film worldwide, once contract details are ironed out. The specialty Fox label released Glazer’s “Sexy Beast,” which garnered Ben Kingsley a best supporting actor nomination.

Glazer developed “Birth” with scribe Carriere through his London-based Academy Prods., the musicvid and commercials shingle he co-owns (Variety, Sept. 2). French co-producer Jean-Louis Piel helped in the development process, as did Glazer’s producing partner, Nick Morris and Academy exec Lizzie Gower.

A taut, psychological thriller set in Gotham, “Birth” tells the story of a 35-year-old woman into whose life comes an infatuated 10-year-old boy, claiming to be the reincarnation of her husband, who died 10 years earlier. The script had attracted interest from New Line and other companies before Regency Enterprises took it off the market.

Carriere’s credits include “Belle de Jour,” “The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie,” “That Obscure Object of Desire,” “The Tin Drum” and “The Unbearable Lightness of Being.”

Milo Addica, who co-penned “Monster’s Ball,” did rewrites on “Birth.” Glazer, repped by ICM, is penning “Under the Skin” with Addica. Industry Entertainment has been developing the project with FilmFour.

Regency, with Fox 2000, last made “Unfaithful,” the Diane Lane starrer helmed by Adrian Lyne. Next up is “Daredevil,” starring Ben Affleck, due in theaters on Valentine’s Day.
