Netflix has accustomed us to things done in style: the new project of the big N, Leave the world behindseems destined not to go off the track from this point of view, with a director and a cast that once again confirm the production’s desire to focus on big names to hit the bull’s-eye once again.
The film based on the novel of the same name by Ruuman Alam will in fact see Sam Esmail behind the camera, and in front of the lens a decidedly not bad trio of stars: already in recent months Julia Robert and Mahershala Ali had been announced as the protagonists of this new thriller, but in these hours a new entry of the same level has been made official.
We are talking about Kevin Bacon: the Footloose actor, spotted on the set of Guardians of the Galaxy vol.3 a few weeks ago, will in fact join Roberts and Ali in the cast of a thriller that seems to promise quite well, and which will see Sam Esmail, mainly famous for his amazing screenplay by Mr. Robot, try your hand at driving a feature film for the first time.
The film will follow the story of a family vacationing on Long Island: here a mysterious blackout it will put a strain on our protagonists, who will have to investigate what happened and, inevitably, also on themselves and their ties. To date we don’t have a release date for Leave the World Behind: we, however, will keep an eye out for news from Netflix.
