It’s been revealed that Steven Spielberg has signed a deal with Netflix which will see him direct multiple films for the streamer.
This news was revealed by Deadline and it’s a really huge move for Netflix and an interesting one for Spielberg.
Spielberg is one of those directors who could make a movie for any studio.
He would have his pick of them, and it’s interesting to see him sign this multiple picture deal with Netflix.
Netflix has made a bunch of pretty impressive movies over the years.
The one that stands out is Alfonso Cuarón’s Roma which came away with a few Academy Awards.
I wonder whether Netflix is hoping that Spielberg could bring them some more awards in the future.
Steven Spielberg is going to be making multiple movies for Netflix
Here’s what Deadline had to say about the ins and outs of this Spielberg and Netflix multiple movie deal:
The Netflix deal will co-exist side by side with the one Spielberg and Amblin have at Universal Pictures. Neither will have first shot at Amblin properties; Spielberg will make some films for Universal, and others to be made for Netflix. The expectation is that Amblin will generate multiple films per year for Netflix, which has a voracious appetite for content and releases a new film per week. Amblin’s Universal deal was extended last December, at which time comments reflected the possibility that a streaming deal might be in the offing.
This deal comes after Netflix did similar deals with the likes of Aaron Sorkin and David Fincher.
