AFM: Robert Pattinson-Patricia Arquette Thriller ‘High Life’ Gets Financing

Sci-fi thriller “High Life,” starring Robert Pattinson, Patricia Arquette, and Mia Goth, has received financing from Andrew Lauren Productions and is set to go into production in the spring of 2017.

The company announced at the American Film Market that it has partnered with Alcatraz Films, Pandora Film Produktion, the Apocalypse Films, and Madants to produce and finance “High Life,” the English-language debut of French filmmaker Claire Denis. The film is now fully financed with Wild Bunch handling international sales.

The film centers on convicts who trade in their jail time by agreeing to crew a dangerous mission to a black hole, set on an intergalactic ship.

Andrew Lauren and partner D.J. Gugenheim will produce for ALP, along with Laurence Clerc and Olivier Thery-Lapiney for Alcatraz, Claudia Steffen and Christoph Friedel for Pandora, and Oliver Dungey for Apocalypse. Klaudia Smeija will co-produce for Madants.

The film is supported by Arte France Cinema and CNC in France, Film and Medienstiftung NRW, Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg, Filmförderungsanstalt, Arte/WDR, and DFFF in Germany, developed with the British Film Institute and Altaris in Great Britain and financed by the Polish Film Institute in Poland.

Andrew Lauren Productions is in development on “The Shower” with Warner Bros. as well as two as-yet-untitled projects written by Taylor Sheridan. ALP’s credits include “The Spectacular Now,” “The Squid and the Whale,” and the documentary “Life 2.0.”

CAA brokered the deal and will represent the film’s U.S. distribution rights. ALP is represented by attorney David Boyle.
