Netflix has sealed a four-movie deal with Duplass Brothers Productions partners Mark and Jay Duplass. The company will finance four Duplass films that will premiere exclusively on the streaming VOD service after a brief theatrical release window.
This exclusive deal arrives on the heels of Netflix’s two significant announcements from last year: a similarly structured four-picture pact with Adam Sandler, and a partnership with The Weinstein Company to debut the “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” sequel day-and-date in August 2015.
The prolific indie filmmaking duo, who most recently co-created HBO comedy “Togetherness,” inked the pact in Park City, where the 2015 Sundance Film Festival is currently underway. The Duplass Brothers’ also produced director Bryan Buckley’s buzzy “The Bronze,” the raunchy comedy that opened the fest Thursday night.
