Academy Award Winner Sandra Bullock is returning to Netflix for a new movie untitled movie with director Nora Fingscheidt. Academy Award Winner Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspects, Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation) adapted the movie from the BAFTA Award-nominated 3-part British mini-series “Unforgiven.”
The official logline reads, “Released from prison after serving a sentence for a violent crime, Ruth Slater (Bullock) re-enters a society that refuses to forgive her past. Facing severe judgment from the place she once called home, her only hope for redemption is finding the estranged younger sister she was forced to leave behind.”
Fingscheidt made her directorial debut with her film “Systemsprenger,” which premiered at the 2019 International Berlin Film Festival where she won the Silver Bear Alfred Bauer Award for new perspectives in cinema. Since then, the film has won 24 international awards and was selected to represent Germany at the 2020 Academy Awards. Graham King, Bullock, and Veronica Ferres are serving as producers on the film, with Nan Morales, Nicola Shindler, Sally Wainwright, and Colin Vaines serving as executive producers.
Sandra Bullock recently starred in “Bird Box,” which remains one of Netflix‘s top performing films and was watched by over 80M accounts in its first four weeks, according to the company. In that film, a mysterious force decimates the world’s population, and only one thing is certain: if you see it, you take your life. Netflix’s description reads, “Facing the unknown, Malorie finds love, hope and a new beginning only for it to unravel. Now she must flee with her two children down a treacherous river to the one place left that may offer sanctuary. But to survive, they’ll have to undertake the perilous two-day journey blindfolded.” The cast included Bullock, Trevante Rhodes, Sarah Paulson, and John Malkovich. That movie is already available on Netflix.
