Netflix wins Simon Kinberg’s spec script Here Comes The Flood

Following a competitive bidding war against multiple studios, Deadline is bringing word that Netflix has successfully won the rights to Oscar nominee Simon Kinberg’s spec script for the heist film titled Here Comes The Flood. The outlet’s sources also noted that the deal reportedly cost mid-seven figures. This project will be Kinberg’s first original screenplay in 15 years since writing Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s iconic action film Mr. & Mrs. Smith in 2005.

This new deal comes after the streaming service had also picked up two new high-profile projects: the Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt-led action comedy Ball and Chain; and the upcoming sequel to the Russo Brothers’ hit action film Extraction.
