“Vox Lux” marks the follow-up to Corbet’s Venice Film Festival double award winner, “The Childhood of a Leader.”

The film will be shot on 65mm large-format film and exhibit on 70mm large-format film. Kodak is helping back the movie from an equity and marketing perspective.

Christine Vachon and David Hinojosa of Killer Films will produce along with Brian Young of Three Six Zero Entertainment.
