Director Jonathan Glazer Working on Holocaust Movie; Set For Release in 2020

Director Jonathan Glazer is one of the true visionaries to have emerged in cinema since 2000. After all, his ultra-stylized 2000 gangster film “Sexy Beast” turned heads for its visual palette and a now legendary Ben Kingsley performance which could only be described as "savage." However, since then, Gazer has only given us two more films, the highly underrated “Birth,” starring Nicole Kidman, which has aged like fine wine over time, and his masterpiece: “Under the Skin,” starring Scarlett Johansson as a roaming alien sent to London to feed off of innocent and pathetic male pedestrians.
That film is one of the great achievements of this decade, but it premiered on the festival circuit in 2013.  Needless to say, its been 5 years since "Under the Skin," and Glazer seems to be taking all the time in the world to make his next film. Which is why today's news that he is working on a new project should be posted at the top of this website. 
Glazer is now talking about his upcoming film. Speaking on the A Dash of Drash podcast, Glazer confirmed that he’s working on a Holocaust film set in Auschwitz. The director mentioned being horrified by pictures of the Holocaust as a child. “I remember being very taken by the faces of the bystanders, the onlookers, the complicit, you know? Ordinary Germans,” he said.
“I started wondering how it would be possible to stand by and watch that. Some of the faces actually enjoy it. The spectacle of it. The kinda circus of it,” he continued.
“A lot of the stories I’ve seen, I do sometimes think they could be set anywhere actually,” Glazer says. “As soon as you define a plot, you’re sort of somehow relegating Auschwitz as a place and it becomes a context. For me, I don’t want to do that. I just felt that was wrong.”
“Now, I’ve spent four or five years working entirely on this project.”
Glazer is Jewish and attended a Jewish school, but he wouldn't just be focusing on the concentration camps it seems. No, it looks like he would be tackling the outside zones, the citizens that knew what was going on but let it slide, some with a content and happy grin on their faces.
Glazer says that filming should happen next summer and the film will be released in 2020.
