Deal comes following premiere
The film, directed by Jonathan Glazer (“Sexy Beast”), stars Johansson as an alien seductress who seeks out hitchhikers.
“Skin” also screened at Telluride and Venice. Scott Foundas of Variety said in his review that the film was “undeniably ambitious but ultimately torpid.”
The deal came three days after A24 bought U.S. rights to Tom Hardy’s “Locke” for more than $1 million. CAA and WME are representing “Skin.”
Deadline.com site first reported the deal.
