Netflix Acquires Will Smith Action Thriller FAST & LOOSE From JOHN WICK Director David Leitch
Netflix has acquired the worldwide rights to the action thriller Fast & Loose starring Will Smith, from director David Leitch (John Wick, Atomic Blonde, Deadpool 2). Writing team Jon Hoeber and Erich Hoeber (Red, Battleship, The Meg, My Spy) wrote the script for the film.
The initial synopsis reads:
“The film follows a man who wakes up in Tijuana with no memories. As he pieces together his past, he learns he’s been living two lives, one as a crime kingpin and the other as an undercover CIA agent.”
Back in February, it was announced that the film was hitting the market and had garnered much interest from all the big names that were involved in the bidding war for the rights. Netflix inevitably won and has been negotiating deals since.
