Netflix aims is to create a new franchise with a James Bond level of scale and a budget upward of USD 200 million. Anthony and Joe Russo will be producing the project through their AGBO banner. Joe Russo wrote the script, with Avengers: Endgame screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely polishing the final draft. AGBO’s Mike Larocca, along with Joe Roth and Jeff Kirschenbaum for Roth Kirschenbaum, are also on board as producers. The makers are planning to start the filming in January in Los Angeles while international locations are still being finalised.
Dhanush has previously featured in 2018’s English-language movie The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir, directed by Ken Scott. He is currently working on filmmaker Aanad L Rai’s Atrangi Re, opposite Akshay Kumar and Sara Ali Khan.
Note: The Extraordinary Journey of The Fakir can be seen as a companion piece to Rohit Shetty’s obnoxious Chennai Express, wherein the hero sets out on a voyage to immerse his grandfather’s ashes and falls in love with his Meenamma. Ajatashatru Lavash Patel aka Aja (an excellent Dhanush, who, at times, looks alien to this universe) undergoes a similar journey in Fakir. The difference is that Fakir is never boring and enjoyable in parts. It opens with Aja narrating a deeply personal story to a bunch of boys from a Mumbai slum, who have been caught by the police for a petty crime.
