Duplass Brothers Sign A Netflix Deal

Netflix has signed a deal with famed indie filmmakers Jay Duplass and Mark Duplass to produce four movies to be distributed exclusively on the SVOD service after a short theatrical release window of unspecified length.

The deal marks the third major deal regarding Netflix’s move into the cinematic realm following a four-movie exclusive deal with Adam Sandler, and an agreement with Weinstein Co. and Imax regarding the “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” sequel.

The deal will NOT include the sex comedy “The Bronze” which premiered Thursday at the Sundance Film Festival and which the Duplass brothers served as executive producers. Relativity Studios and others are said to be circling that film which follows a failed Olympic gymnast.
