According to recent news Netflix has reached an agreement for the rights of Shaft's Reboot in which Samuel L. Jackson will appear.
Deadline has reported that to ensure international rights and to be able to take the film to the Streaming services two weeks after the movie premieres in the US cinemas, Netflix would have to pay at the beginning of the production just over half of the films. 30 million dollars of the budget.
Although New Line and Netflix have not pronounced on the agreement, the information assures that they have been working on it for several weeks and that this will not affect the American market. In the USA, the film will maintain the natural trajectory of the films, arriving first at the cinemas and then arriving at the Streaming service and finally at its physical version, so as not to damage the cinemas.
This treatment could serve as a basis for future releases and films, since in this case the director Tim Story may have a larger budget to carry out the film and Netflix can offer the content before markets that otherwise would have to wait more time to its launch.
