Producers are LuckyChap’s Tom Ackerley, Margot Robbie, Josey McNamara and Indian Paintbrush’s Steven Rales. EPs are Dan Bekerman, Bronte Payne and Park.

Saltburn also repped the highest week-over-week growth for any Prime Video film in 2023. Saltburn blasted the 2001 Sophie Ellis-Bextor song “Murder on the Dance Floor” back onto the Billboard Global 200 charts where it peaked at the No. 10 spot.
