In competition, Screen Gems has acquired the film, which stems from an idea that came from Atomic Monster’s James Wan and Ingrid Bisu
The film is set in the beauty industry, colliding the worlds of glamour and body horror in a supernatural tale of one girl’s deadly pursuit of perfection
COSMETIC will be written and directed by the husband and wife duo, Micheline Pitt and R.H. Norman. Pitt is a writer, director, designer, artist, animator, and advocate who is the founder and creative director of two multimillion dollar fashion companies and also an advocate for sexual assault survivors as a member of RAINN’s National Leadership Council. Norman directed the short films Gusano and Afghanistan War short, Hajji. Late last year, Pitt and Norman wrote and directed Grummy, a beautiful yet dark fairy tale based on her own childhood assault survival story.
James Wan and Michael Clear are producing from Atomic Monster, with Ingrid Bisu and Judson Scott executive producing. Scott Strauss and Michael Bitar will oversee for Screen Gems
Wan is represented by CAA, Stacey Testro International and Myman Greenspan; Norman & Pitt are repped by Verve and attorney Jamie Feldman.
