‘It Follows’ Director Lands Next Film With Andrew Garfield Attached to Star

David Robert Mitchell is set to direct his original script, “Under the Silver Lake,” with Andrew Garfield attached to star.

The pic is a modern-day noir crime thriller set in Los Angeles.

The film is Mitchell’s follow-up to his critically acclaimed horror “It Follows,” with production set to start at the end of the summer. Insiders is handling international distribution.

Michael De Luca is producing under his Michael De Luca Productions banner. Chris Bender, Jake Weiner and Adele Romanski are producing as well.

David Robert Mitchell is one of the great new voices in cinema and I am honored to be working with him and the entire producing team,” De Luca said. “I look forward to working with the esteemed team at Insiders to bring David’s film to audiences around the world.”

Lucy Kitada is overseeing for Michael De Luca Productions.

Mitchell’s “It Follows” premiered in 2014 at the Cannes Film Festival to critical praise. His first feature, “The Myth of the American Sleepover,” premiered at the SXSW Film Festival, winning a Special Jury Prize and premiered internationally at Cannes Critics’ Week.

Garfield has Mel Gibson-directed war film “Hacksaw Ridge” bowing this year, along with the Martin Scorsese drama “Silence” expected to debut. He is coming off of “99 Homes,” which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival and earned him and co-star Michael Shannon strong reviews.

CAA, which represents Mitchell and Garfield, packaged the project and brokered the deal with Insiders and represents the domestic rights. Mitchell is also represented by Benderspink, and attorney David Fox; Garfield by Gordon and French in the U.K., and attorney David Weber.
