EXCLUSIVE: In its second deal of the festival, A24 is closing U.S. rights for a bit more than $1 million on Under The Skin, the Jonathan Glazer-directed atmospheric thriller that stars Scarlett Johansson as an alien who preys on hitchhikers, who get a one-way ticket to her planet. Nick Wechsler and James Wilson produced it and Walter Campbell wrote the script. The film premiered Monday at the Princess Of Wales and talks went on through last night. A24 made the fest’s first deal with an acquisition of Locke. CAA and WME repped the title.
