Netflix has acquired the rights to an upcoming film starring Emily Blunt and Chris Evans. The film is the brainchild of David Yates, who previously directed the Harry Potter movies and Animali Fantastici. It was presented at Cannes and is set to begin filming on August 22. The streaming service hopes to have the film out in early 2023.
Blunt will co-star with Chris Evans, who has left the Marvel studio to pursue a career in Hollywood. Netflix has landed a feature package of Pain Hustlers after the movie was selected by the Cannes Film Festival. David Yates is the director of the film, which stars Blunt as a dropout who lands a job at a failing pharmaceutical company in a yellowing strip mall in Central Florida.
