Netflix obtained the US distribution rights for Navot Papushado action flix Milkshakes with powder. The film will debut on the streaming service this summer.
According to the deadline, the film is directed by a cast of female stars, including Karen gillanAnd Angela Bassett, Lena headey, Michelle Yeoh, Carla Gugino, Chole Coleman and Paul Giamatti with Ehud Lavski and Navot Papushado writing the screenplay.
The story follows Sam (Gillan), a woman abandoned by her mother Scarlet (Headey), a former assassin, who becomes a trained killer working for the company her mother left years ago. When one of her successful jobs doesn’t go as planned, Sam must unite with her mother and her mother’s former coworkers (Bassett, Yeoh, and Gugino), if she has any chance of surviving.
Netflix is forking out eight-figure deals all over the place to add to its franchise collection. In March, Due date reports that the streaming service gave director Rian Johnson $ 450 million to direct Knives Out 2 and 3. Now they want Milkshakes with powder becoming its own franchise as a sequel was already lit ahead of the first film’s summer debut.
Can’t wait to see this movie? I’m excited about this one because at least it’s not a redesign or remake of another existing action franchise. Let me know what you think in the comments!
