Netflix typically sticks with low budget indie flicks, mostly because the risks are low, but now that they’re a big player in the movie industry, they are ready to spread their wings.
The streaming giant reportedly put in $90 million for ‘Bright,’ a sci-fi action flick directed by David Ayer and starring Will Smith and Joel Edgerton. The movie, which was written by the always unique Max Landis, follows the story of two LAPD police officers who “form a most unlikely duo (one is a human and the other is an Orc) working to keep the mean streets of Los Angeles safe from a dark, sinister underworld.”
This movie will be released on Netflix (and select theaters) on December 22, and you know Netflix is hoping it does well. In addition to Smith and Edgerton, Bright also stars Noomi Rapace, Lucy Fry and Edgar Ramirez.
