How do you follow Deadpool 2? Netflix seems to be the answer for Ryan Reynolds, who is heading to the streaming giant for his next feature film, Six Underground
Skydance Media is co-producing the film, which is based on an original idea by writers and executive producers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, fresh from working with Reynolds on Deadpool and Deadpool 2.
While we don’t know the exact details of the action film, we do know that it will be big and large – it will be directed by Michael Bay (Transformers).
Skydance’s David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Don Granger will produce Six Underground, along with Bay. It marks the first collaboration between Skydance Media and Netflix for an event level feature film and the first Netflix project for both Michael Bay and Ryan Reynolds. Skydance does, however, has a long-standing relationship with Netflix in television where they produce the critically acclaimed and Emmy Nominated series Grace and Frankie and earlier this year launched the high-concept, strong IP based sci-fi series Altered Carbon on the platform.
The film, produced by Skydance Media and Netflix, is targeting a summer start of production for release in 2019.
