The Raid director Gareth Evans' next project Apostle has reportedly been picked up by Netflix.
The movie, which will star Beauty and the Beast's Dan Stevens and Passengers' Michael Sheen, is set to premiere on the streaming giant, according to Deadline.
The synopsis is brief, but we should probably expect action, blood and gore, on the basis of the Raid series.
Apostle follows a man who travels to a remote island to rescue his sister from a religious cult. However, the group demands a ransom for her return, undermining his resolve.
Also cast in the movie are Lucy Boynton, Bill Millner and Kristine Froseth, with shooting due to begin in April.
However, the service's co-founder recently admitted that some Hollywood A-listers do not want the service making movies.
"Some talent is willing to work with it if we pay them enough. Other talent does not want to be on the cutting edge, say like Kevin Spacey and David Fincher were with Netflix and House of Cards," Reed Hastings explained.
"We're not anti-theatre. We just want things to come out at the same time. The theatres – at least the big theatres like Regal and AMC – refuse to share with us. They refuse to give options to the customer," he added.
"Our motivation is to see innovation and growth in the movie market. It's not to kill the theatre. Like many of you, we go to the theatres. We enjoy it."
