fairplayNetflix has swooped in for the kill on one of the most talked-about films at the ongoing Sundance Film Festival 2023. The streaming behemoth has grabbed Chloe Domont’s ‘Fair Play’ after a fierce bidding war broke out for the film, post its Saturday screening at Sundance. Searchlight, Lionsgate and Neon were among those vying for rights to ‘Fair Play’.

Netflix has reportedly paid a whopping amount to pick up rights for ‘Fair Play’. As per reports in the media, Netflix has shelled out a cool $20M million for the film, making it one of the biggest deals at Sundance 2023. Netflix has earned global rights for ‘Fair Play’ through the sale.

‘Fair Play’ is a searing film that centres on gender conflicts and the subsequent powerplay at the workplace. It shines a light on the deep-rooted masculine insecurity and the fragile male ego when confronted with a strong, driven woman. Both leads of the film, Phoebe Dynevor (Bridgerton) and Alden Ehrenreich (Hail, Caesar!) have delivered stunning performances in ‘Fair Play’. The film is directed by Chloe Domont (Billions, Suits), and produced by Rian Johnson’s T-Street, along with MRC.

Netflix has also picked up thriller film ‘Run Rabbit Run’, starring Sarah Snook (Succession), earlier this week at Sundance 2023.Follow us on Google News
