Washington D.C.: After teaming with American actor Ryan Reynolds on the hit ‘6 Underground,’ the streaming service Netflix is buying an untitled action-adventure film that is set to star Reynolds and be directed by ‘Night at the Museum’s’ Shawn Levy.
According to Variety, Netflix bought the rights from Skydance Media, which backed ‘6 Underground,’ as well as the streamer’s recent smash ‘The Old Guard.’ Financial terms of the sale were not disclosed.
Previously, Reynolds and Levy teamed on the upcoming action-comedy ‘Free Guy.’ Both men will also produce the film.
