Scott Stuber to head Netflix original film initiative

14 March 2017 12:36 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

War Machine, First They Killed My Father, Bright among roster of titles scheduled to launch this year.

One of the biggest open secrets in Hollywood was confirmed on Tuesday as it emerged Scott Stuber, the former vice-chairman of worldwide production at Universal, will head Netflix’s original film initiative.

The appointment is a coup for deep-pocketed streaming service as it attempts to draw big names and big productions into the fold beyond those that are already lined up for release this year (see below).

Stuber had been courted for the top job at Paramount and will now lead the development, production and acquisition of Netflix’s growing slate of original films for a global subscriber base the company said currently numbered more than 93m.

The new hire most recently founded and ran Bluegrass Films, the Universal-based production company behind such hits as Ted, and Central Intelligence. Bluegrass will transition to partner Dylan Clark and continue its TV »

Bright: First Look Images of Joel Edgerton and Will Smith

6 March 2017 9:57 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

As previously reported a world which consists of Orcs and humans working side by side together in the Lapd will finally become a reality come December 2017… All thanks to Suicide Squad’s David Ayer who takes the driving seat behind the Netflix original film, Bright. To take us deep into this dark alternate world three first look images have come to light.

Related: Bright Teaser Trailer

Our first image portrays a gun totting Will Smith as human Lapd Cop, Ward. Mean and moody and ready to take down some otherworldly criminal types.

The second image shows Joel Edgerton as you’ve never seen him before as Jakoby, the first ever Orc Cop to grace the American police force. With his large bulking frame, blue(ish) skin tone and bald head, a menacing demeanour engulfs his very being. We would hate to get on the wrong side of him. »

1 March 2017 11:34 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Ryan Murphy has already shot down rumors that Lady Gaga will be playing Donatella Versace in Versace: American Crime Story.

Will Smith reteams with director David Ayer to play a supernatural cop in the teaser trailer for Netflix movie Bright.

While Netflix has been flexing its ever-expanding muscles with plenty of original high-profile projects, the upcoming Bright may just take things to a new level. After winning a $90 million bidding war to acquire the film last March, the streaming giant stacked it with a bevy of big-names, notably reuniting Will Smith with Suicide Squad director David Ayer. Now, this intriguing offering has released an appetite-whetting teaser trailer.

Bright Teaser: Fantasy Meets Reality In New Will Smith Film From Director David Ayer

27 February 2017 8:47 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

David Ayer has had quite the career thus far. He had his start writing such films as U-571, and the original Fast and the Furious film. From there, he hit his most high profile picture yet when he wrote Training Day, a film that would go on to be praised as one of Denzel Washington’s best performances yet.

In the mid-2000s, Ayer transition into directing, and over the next decade or so, he would establish himself as a helmer of violent dramas that include Street Kings, End of Watch, Sabotage, and Fury. Last year, his most high profile film yet, Suicide Squad hit theaters, and despite making all kinds of money at the box office, it was met with widespread ridicule from critics and fans. Regardless of what you thought of the film, however, there was little denying that he was a talented director. And like any good director, »

Will Smith Enters a Fantasy World in First Teaser for ‘Bright’

27 February 2017 5:39 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Netflix still hasn’t formally announced their reported acquisition of Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman — with a ballooned budget now at $125 million — but the company has a few more high-profile original films coming before then. This summer will see the release of Bong Joon-ho’s monster movie Okja, then later this year they’ll release the $90 million sci-fi action feature Bright.

Coming from David Ayer, who has a proclivity for both cop dramas and fantasy (as seen in his Oscar-winning tentpole Suicide Squad), the two worlds merge with his next film. Following Will Smith as a human detective who teams with an orc cop (Joel Edgerton) to regain control of a magic wand from evil forces, it sounds just peculiar enough to pique our curiosity. The first teaser has now arrived, which runs a brief 30 seconds as it introduces this strange world of creature-filled policing.
