Netflix has signed an exclusive first look deal with “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” and “Cloverfield” director Matt Reeves and his 6th & Idaho production company. The deal replaces the one Reeves had at Fox which has come to an end.
Netflix will get an exclusive first look at any feature films that Reeves wants to produce and/or direct through his production company. This doesn’t include “The Batman,” Reeves’ next film which is currently in development at Warner Bros. Pictures.
Scott Stuber, head of Netflix’s film initiative says: “Matt is a fantastic storyteller with a unique vision and his track record speaks for itself. At Netflix we are partnering with the best filmmakers and know that Matt and his team will bring great inventive films to our global audience. We couldn’t be more excited to welcome him to the Netflix family.”
