Gal Gadot-led espionage thriller, ‘Heart of Stone’, developed by Sky dance Media, is finally now in the hands of Netflix. Netflix has pulled in the worldwide rights to ‘Heart of Stone’.
“Heart of Stone” marks the second major movie that Skydance has siphoned off this week. On Tuesday, Amazon Studios emerged as the frontrunner for “The Tomorrow War,” a science-fiction spectacle starring Chris Pratt. Amazon is reportedly shelling out $200 million for global rights, but insiders stress the sale hasn’t been finalized.
As far as the movie ‘Heart of Stone’ is considered, Tom Harper, best known for “The Aeronauts” and “Wild Rose,” is directing the international action epic from a screenplay by Greg Rucka and Allison Schroeder. Plot details are being kept under wraps. There are no real plot details at the moment, but according to some reports the film “aspires to hatch a female-centric franchise with the action and global scale of films like Mission: Impossible and 007.” Tom Harper, director of the already-forgotten Amazon movie The Aeronauts, is set to helm a script by Greg Rucka (The Old Guard) and Allison Schroeder (Hidden Figures). This will be Gadot’s second Netflix film – she’s also starring in ‘Red Notice’ alongside Dwayne Johnson and Ryan Reynolds.
Also, it is the first East German film made in Agfacolor, it was released in 1950. The film is based on the fairy tale of the same name originally published by Wilhelm Hauff in 1826.
Gal Gadot’s Espionage Thriller ‘Heart of Stone’ shall now belong to Netflix!
Considering the selling partnership of Skydance, it has been an active seller during the pandemic, recently auctioning off upcoming animated features “Luck” and “Spellbound” to Apple. Streaming services has been something of a salvation for traditional Hollywood studios and production companies, who rely on box office dollars to turn a profit on expensive movies. With U.S. cinemas mostly closed due to COVID-19, the few films that have opened theatrically have struggled to get out of the red.
Analyzing the one to one relationship between Sky dance Media and Netflix, they have previously partnered on films including “The Old Guard” with Charlize Theron, Ryan Reynolds’ “6 Underground” and the upcoming “The Adam Project” starring Reynolds and directed by Shawn Levy.
