The streaming service takes over the sequels of Daniel Craig’s detective for 400 million euros.
Netflix has outgrown its predictions due to the pandemic. His goals have been several years ahead and he has decided not to watch his bank account grow. After all, Disney +, Amazon or HBO Max is also investing heavily to dominate the streaming market.
In recent times it has become common to hear millionaire deals from the company but it is still shocking to see that, as EW assures, Netflix has bought the rights to ‘Back Daggers 2’ and ‘Back Daggers 3’ for nothing less than 400 million euros, double what it cost to produce ‘Tenet’. Let’s not forget, it is the long-awaited sequels by Rian Johnson around the character of Benoit Blanc, the detective played by Daniel Craig in the first film, with a choral cast headed by Ana de Armas. Cluedo’s fun format inspired by the adventures of Agatha Christie’s character, Hercule Poirot, has won over fans, although a sequel with different cases and casts is always an adventure that can go wrong at the box office if it doesn’t get hit. .
On Netflix it will be different, there is no doubt that the users of the platform will click on Friday night to see how Daniel Craig solves, more or less, a new crime. According to Deadline, Johnson has already written the two sequels and the first of them would begin to be produced in Greece this same month of June.
Of course, the Twitter account of the film was surprised after breaking the news.
From Chris Evans ‘jersey to Ana de Armas’ cup, to Christopher Plummer’s last great role, the 2019 original soon found its place among fans, especially for a cast that was completed by Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon. Toni Collette or Lakeith Stanfield.
The truth is that both Rian Johnson and Daniel Craig (who has already said goodbye to Bond) commented during the promotional campaign how much fun they had together, and that they would be delighted to collaborate again. It seems, all according to EW, that his wish will be fulfilled. Of course, Netflix has not yet officially communicated it.
