Netflix has released numerous movies in its time, but by far the biggest was David Ayer’s “Bright” – the Will Smith-led fantasy film about a human and orc pair of cops working together in contemporary Los Angeles.
Watched by an estimated eleven million people in three days, the film had the largest budget of a Netflix original feature to date – $90 million before marketing.
That’s about to change as the trades report that their just announced new film “Six Underground,” the Michael Bay-directed action thriller starring Ryan Reynolds and penned by the writers of “Deadpool,” has secured a production budget of around $150 million.
Additionally, some further story details have emerged and indicate the plot revolves around six billionaires who fake their own deaths and form an elite team to take down bad guys. Skydance, who worked with Netflix on their “Altered Carbon” series,” is producing.
