Netflix has acquired the worldwide rights to the Sundance hit Fair Play
The film stars Eddie Marsan, Alden Ehrenreich, Phoebe Dynevor, and Rich Sommer. A thriving New York couple Emily (Dynevor) and Luke (Ehrenreich) can’t get enough of each other. When a coveted promotion at a cutthroat financial firm arises, supportive exchanges between the lovers begin to sour into something more sinister. As the power dynamics irrevocably shift in their relationship, Luke and Emily must face the true price of success and the unnerving limits of ambition.
The film is the first to come out of the association between MRC and T-Street’s Rian Johnson and Ram Bergman, designed to hatch vehicles with emerging talent. What a rousing start, with a drama that launches a new filmmaking voice in writer/director Chloe Domont, making her feature directing debut after directing eps of “Billions,” “Suits” and “Ballers”. T-Street partners are also coming off The Glass Onion, the Knives Out sequel that is also one of the bright spots of the fall movie season. While there were at least seven offers including Searchlight and Neon, Netflix may have had an edge in that it made that incredible $450 million deal with T-Street for two Knives Out sequels.
Fair Play is produced by T-Street’s Leopold Hughes and Ben LeClair and Star Thrower Entertainment’s Tim White, Trevor White and Allan Mandelbaum. T-Street’s Rian Johnson and Ram Bergman are the exec producers.
Domont is repped by UTA, which was very involved in putting the film together for her. MRC and T-Street brokered it.
