Soon, you'll be able to have Brad Pitt in your bedroom with the click of a button.
The remote button, that is. And it'll only be in your bedroom if that's where your Netflix-connected TV is.
Netflix has brokered a deal in the $30 million range for rights to distribute "War Machine," Brad Pitt's next movie, according to a press release from the online service.
The leading streaming service is officially a producer on the movie alongside Plan B, Pitt's production company. The movie, due out in 2016 on Netflix and select theaters, is described in a press release as a "provocative satirical comedy." David Michôd directs.
The movie is based on the late journalist Michael Hastings' book, "The Operators: The Wild and Terrifying Inside Story of America’s War in Afghanistan," following a general who's determined to win an "impossible war."
Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos voiced his excitement in the release.
“'War Machine' is a rip-roaring, behind-the-facade tale of modern war decision-makers, from the corridors of power to the distant regions of America’s ambitions," he said. “Brad and David are a perfect team to make this timely, compelling and entertaining film.”
"War Machine" is due out in 2016.
