2024 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Aaron Schimberg’s A Different Man

We begin our predictions list with what is one of about a half dozen or so A24 titles that are waiting to get out of the gates and Aaron Schimberg‘s third feature film is probably the one that has benefitted from the most time in post. Moving into production in the month of July in 2022 in New York City, A Different Man is coined as a psychological thriller (that sure sounds trippy) with the likes of Sebastian Stan, Renate Reinsve and Adam Pearson – who we recall from Glazer’s Under the Skin but was also a topliner in Schimberg’s sophomore feature, Chained for Life. Cinematographer Wyatt Garfield (his most recent work is 2022’s Resurrection and 2023’s Manodrome also worked on the project.

Production Co./Producers: Jason Reif, Killer Films’ Christine Vachon and Gabriel Mayers, Grand Motel Films’ Vanessa McDonnell.
