Netflix Plans $25M Female Action Thriller “Kate”

Netflix has effectively handed out a production commitment and set aside a reported $25 million budget for “Kate,” a new action film script from writer Umair Aleem.

The project is dubbed a hard boiled action feature along “La Femme Nikita” lines and follows a woman who has 24 hours to solve her own murder.

This follows on from Netflix’s Ted Sarandos revealing this week that they plan to release eighty feature films in 2018 – more than doubling their number of 2017 releases.

David Leitch (“John Wick”), Kelly McCormick (“Atomic Blonde”) and Bryan Unkeless (“I, Tonya”) will produce.
