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.

    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.

    I subscribe to Netflix but I would've still like to see this in the cinema, I have high hopes for this film.
