Rooney Mara is attached to star in Brady Corbet's pop star drama Vox Lux.

The soundtrack will boast all original songs written by Grammy nominated, multi-platinum selling artist Sia.

This is the follow-up to Corbet's Venice double award winner, The Childhood of a Leader.

Additionally, the film will be shot on 65mm large format film and exhibit on 70mm large format film. Kodak is helping to back the movie from an equity and marketing perspective.
