Nearly a year and a half after landing John David Washington and Academy Award winner Alicia Vikander to star in the Born to be Murdered, Netflix has acquired the rights to the Luca Guadagnino-produced thriller, as first confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter.
In addition to the duo, the cast for the film also stars Vicky Krieps and Boyd Holbrook. Born to be Murdered was directed by Ferdinando Cito Filomarino, the second-unit director of Guadagnino’s Academy Award-winning Call Me By Your Name, in his English-language directorial debut. The film centers on a couple vacationing in Athens who fall upon a violent conspiracy with tragic consequences.
Much of the crew who worked with Guadagnino on his Academy-Award winning coming-of-age romantic drama joined him once more for this film, including cinematographer Sayombhu Mukdeeprom and Walter Fasano.
Netflix is reportedly eyeing a 2021 debut for Born to Be Murdered.
