Will Smith went to Netflix (again), this time John Wick Director. Netflix announced earlier on Wednesday that it has acquired the global rights to “Fast & Loose”, a new action thriller directed by David Leitch and starring Smith, which plays “Wake up in Tijuana People who don’t have any memories.” When he pieced together his past, he learned that he lived two lives: one is a crime boss, the other is an undercover agent of the CIA. It sounds a bit like Berne, but it’s like being in Mexico? Reach-also known for separating Hobbes and Shaw in “Atomic Blond”, “Deadpool 2” and “Fast and Furious”-will direct Scripts by Jon Hopper and Erich Hopper.
Deadline first brought the news that Fast & Loose was sold to Netflix, the world’s largest subscription-based video streaming service confirmed the news in about an hour. Deadline added that Netflix has been involved since Fast & Loose began sourcing from all major Hollywood companies in February, but the deal was not finalized until late July because Netflix “has already taken time to negotiate.”
