StudioCanal has announced when it will open the alien drama starring Scarlett Johansson.

Under the Skin, starring Scarlett Johansson and directed by Jonathan Glazer, will open across the UK on March 14, 2014 through StudioCanal

Glazer’s third film following Sexy Beast and Birth, is the story of an alien in human form. Part road movie, part science fiction, part real, it’s a film about seeing the world through alien eyes.

Critically acclaimed at the Venice, Toronto and London film festivals, the film was shot in London and extensively on location in Scotland.

Glazer and Walter Campbell wrote the screenplay.  Producers are James Wilson (JW Films) and Nick Wechsler (Nick Wechsler Productions). The film is based on a novel by Michel Faber.

Under the Skin is a Film4 and BFI presentation, in association with Silver Reel, Creative Scotland and FilmNation Entertainment.
