Netflix has secured the filming rights for «Seesaw Monster». Oscar winner Hathaway (“Les Misérables”) and Hayek (“Frida”, “Eternals”) are on board as leading actresses and producers, the streaming service announced on Tuesday.
Accordingly, in the action comedy they play two rivals who are forced to stick together. Olivia Milch (“Ocean’s Eight”) is writing the screenplay. Hayek has already demonstrated her action talent in films such as “Desperado” or “Killer’s Bodyguard”, Hathaway in “The Dark Knight Rises” or “Ocean’s Eight”.
«Bullet Train» (2022), based on Isaka’s bestselling novel «Maria Beetle», took place on a Japanese bullet train in which several assassins meet. Brad Pitt played the killer Ladybug in it, directed by David Leitch. It was not initially known who was to stage “Seesaw Monster”.
