Los Angeles (USA) / Julia Roberts and Denzel Washington will star in Netflix’s upcoming dramatic film, “Leave The World Behind,” which will be based on the novel of the same name by Rumaan Alam and will be one of their big bets for next season.
An exclusive from the specialized media Deadline affirms that the project aroused the interest of several Hollywood giants, with more than 10 offers, among which the technological Apple – increasingly immersed in the audiovisual business – also appeared, although the giant finally took it of the live transmission (“streaming”).
“Leave The World Behind” is a story about two families, unknown to each other, who are forced to spend a long weekend together that goes terribly wrong.
The film, which will be based on a novel that will be published this fall, will mean a new meeting on the screen for both interpreters who already starred together in “The Pelican Report” in 1993.
Roberts will play the mother of the family who rents a house and Washington will play the owner, while director Sam Esmail (“Mr. Robot”, “Homecoming”) will direct and adapt the script.
“The Gray Man”
This is the second great project announced by Netflix in the last week, because a few days ago it confirmed that Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans will be the protagonists of “The Gray Man”, a film to which he will allocate $ 200 million, the largest budget until the time for an original tape deck.
The thriller will be directed by the Russo brothers, who broke historical box office records with “Avengers: Endgame”, and, according to the specialized press in Hollywood, could become a new franchise for the “streaming” giant at the James Bond level.
Both announcements come after Netflix announced its positive financial results for the second quarter of 2020, in which it has added 10 million subscribers, making a total of 26 million new users so far this year. (July 21, 2020, EFE / Practica Español)
