7 Años lands on Netflix this October, marking the streaming giant’s first ever original film in Spanish.
Netflix has increasingly ventured into international territories, with localised productions designed to both expand its library and support its growth in target markets. The VOD company has already produced the TV series Narcos and following the recent Brazilian corruption investigation, Operation Car Wash (Lava Jato in Portuguese), has announced that it, too, is being turned into a Brazilian series by Narcos creator José Padilha.
It has also produced French series Marseille and, last year, debuted Club de Cuervos, its first Spanish-language TV series. It has not yet produced a Spanish-language film, though – until this autumn, with the arrival of 7 Años.
The film is directed by Roger Gual, with Paco León, Juana Acosta, Juan Pablo Raba , Alex Brendemühl and Manuel Morón as protagonists. It follows four colleagues and friends, who have one night to decide which of them should take the blame and go to jail to save the rest, putting their friendship and their sanity to the test.
The movie will be released on Netflix on Friday 28th October.
