Will Smith and director David Ayer, who both worked together on the now Oscar winning (?) Suicide Squad, are back for the Netflix produced Bright. Aussie Joel Edgerton, Noomi Rapace and Edgar Ramirez round out the main cast of the $90m production working from a screenplay by Max Landis (Chronicle, American Ultra).
Synopsis: Set in an alternate present-day where humans, orcs, elves and fairies have been coexisting since the beginning of time, this action-thriller directed by David Ayer (Suicide Squad, End of Watch, writer of Training Day) follows two cops from very different backgrounds. Ward, a human (Will Smith), and Jakoby, an orc (Joel Edgerton), embark on a routine night patrol that will alter the future of their world as they know it. Battling both their own personal differences as well as an onslaught of enemies, they must work together to protect a young female elf and a thought-to-be-forgotten relic, which in the wrong hands could destroy everything.
BRIGHT will release on NETFLIX TBA 2017
