The world waits with baited breath for the arrival of David Ayer's Bright (the orcs-n-cops genre mash-up headed to Netflix on December 22nd), and from the sound of things, the streaming giant is feeling very confident in its chances to catch on with audiences.
“Bright is the company’s first attempt at a big-budget Hollywood production, bringing together a bona fide movie star in a fantasy, buddy-cop tale that could have come from any studio playbook. Directed by David Ayer, who also made Suicide Squad, it’s a warning shot to studios and theater owners that Netflix is targeting a big chunk of the $38.6 billion global box office. To underscore the commitment, the company has already ordered a sequel with Smith signed on."
Yes, that's right: Netflix has ordered a sequel to Bright, and they've already got Will Smith onboard to come back. Intriguingly, there's no mention of Joel Edgerton here (that's him in the header image up top; he plays Smith's orc-cop partner), so I suppose we can draw our own conclusions from that.
Where do you folks stand on Bright? Y'all looking forward to it? Not so much? Are you surprised to learn a sequel's been greenlit before any of us have seen it? Sound off in the comments section below, and stay tuned for updates on Bright 2: Bright Harder as they become available.
