There are no details surrounding the plot just yet, but insiders told the publication that the film with be a “Bond vs. Bourne type of global action thriller with locations to be announced.” Apparently, the studio was eager to bid on the film when it hit the market a week before the announcement on April 18.
Co-studio heads, Michael De Luca and Pam Abdy have expressed their desire to feature films with more well-known leads, so naturally they couldn’t pass up on this opportunity to feature two of the industry’s leading actresses.
“Once this package with two of the bigger stars in the last two decades came together,” Deadline shared. “It was too hard to pass up, with Warners putting in an impressive bid you haven’t been seeing from the studios as often these days, especially with the endless amounts of money the streamers seem to have. While it’s become more common for streamers like Apple or Netflix to make aggressive plays for packages like this, De Luca and Abdy have never shied away from going after a project if they believe in the talent around it. They were two of the more active buyers in the market when the were running MGM, outbidding the competition for similar hot packages like Ridley Scott’s House of Gucci starring Lady Gaga and Adam Driver, and the Ryan Gosling-fronted Project Hail Mary. This latest sale shows they aren’t changing that strategy anytime soon.”
