Andrew Lauren Productions (ALP) and writer-director Brady Corbet will reteam for The Brutalist. Corbet,  will write and direct The Brutalist, their third pairing, which chronicles 30 years in the life of one artist’s enduring monolithic vision.

The story opens in 1947, as a Hungarian-born Jewish architect emigrates to the United States. Initially forced to toil in poverty, he soon wins a contract that will change the course of his life. ALP will develop the script with Corbet and finance the feature. The film will be produced by Andrew Lauren and D.J. Gugenheim for ALP and Three Six Zero’s Brian Young.

The Brutalist will be Corbet’s third feature following Vox Lux, which ALP produced and financed alongside Bold Films, Killer Films and Three Six Zero. Starring Natalie Portman and Jude Law, Vox Lux had its world premiere in competition at the Venice Film Festival on Monday to rave reviews. The film will go on to have its North American premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. This marks Corbet’s return to Venice after his debut feature, The Childhood of a Leader, which won the 2015 “Lion of the Future" Award and Horizons Best Director Award.

Regarding his continuing partnership with ALP, Corbet commented: “I am thrilled to collaborate for the second time with everyone at Andrew Lauren Productions. ALP’s vision for the future of the medium is unique and uniquely ambitious; the ideal partners to bring this epic story to life.”

ALP chairman Andrew Lauren said: “We had such an incredible experience working with our good friend Brady on Vox Lux that it was only natural and fitting to collaborate with him on his next film. He is a phenomenal filmmaker with a brilliant career ahead of him."

ALP president D.J. Gugenheim commented: “Brady’s eye for film and exceptional artistic vision makes him the exact kind of filmmaker we want to be working with.”

In addition to Vox Lux, ALP also produced and financed Claire Denis’ High Life starring Robert Pattinson and Juliette Binoche, which will have its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival next week.
