“I’m assuming this doesn’t end well.”
Helmed and produced by “Suicide Squad” director David Ayer, Netflix’s upcoming crime sci-fi film, titled “Bright”, is going to show you an alternate world where humans live alongside orcs, elves, and fairies.
“Bright” is described as “a contemporary cop thriller, but with fantastical elements”. The story follows 2 cops – Ward (played by Will Smith) and Jakoby (played by Joel Edgerton) – from very different backgrounds. They embark on a routine patrol night and encounter a darkness that will ultimately change the future and their world as they know it.
The movie also stars Noomi Rapace (of “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” fame), Lucy Fry, Edgar Ramirez (from “Hands of Stone”), Margaret Cho (of “Drop Dead Diva” fame ), and Ike Barinholtz (from “Suicide Squad”).

It was reported that Netflix officially picked up the film for a USD90 million deal, which included paying “Chronicle” screenwriter Max Landis $3 million for the script and a $45 million film production budget.
“Bright” will make its global debut on Netflix sometime in December this year.
