Gareth Evans' APOSTLE Picked up by Netflix
Deadline is reporting that Apostle, the upcoming period revenge flick from The Raid's Gareth Evans has been acquired by streaming giant Netflix. The film is set to begin production this April and stars Dan Stevens, Michael Sheen, Lucy Boynton, Bill Millner and Kristine Froseth. 
The pic follows man who travels to a remote island and attempts to rescue his sister after she’s kidnapped by a religious cult. The group demands a ransom for the sister’s return, undermining the man’s resolve to rescue her.
So this probably means that those of us looking forward to a lengthy festival run for Apostle will not get it. It will likely make one high profile festival screening just to get the word out then show up on Netflix shortly thereafter. Considering Apostle is only heading into production next month it will be some time before we have a streaming date to share with you. 
XYZ Films, Severn Screen and Evans’ One More One Production are producing.

Chief executive officer of Yahoo!, is helping people to get started in "Work at home" practice, that Loads of people have been doing for more than twelve months now. This season only, I generated close to $36k up to now with nothing but my home computer and some spare time, even though i have a fulltime nine to five job. Even people newbie in this, actually make $50/per h successfully and the income might be even higher in the long run... This is how i started >>

Gee, let me guess which festival! Regardless, Netflix pickups playing at film fests are something of a ripoff at the higher ticket prices. Essentially you're paying to see a cable TV movie -- even a really good one -- that doesn't need your help or the buzz. Had slightly higher hopes for this one, until I saw this article.
