Skin marks the first U.S feature film of Israeli director Guy Nattiv who also served as the film’s producer. The cast also includes Vera Farmiga (The Conjuring, Godzilla: King of the Monsters) as Shareen Krager, Danielle MacDonald (Bird Box, Dumplin) as Julie Larsen, Mike Colter (Girls Trip, The Defenders) as Daryle Lamont Jenkins, and Bill Camp (The Leftovers) as Fred Krager.
Oren Moverman, Jaime Ray Newman and Dillon D. Jordan along with Maven Pictures’ Trudie Styler and Celine Rattray are the film’s producers.
Bell is best known for his film debut role in Billy Elliot as the titular character that earned him a BAFTA Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role.

Rocketman is currently in production and will be release next year on May 31.
