Netflix has ordered Past Midnight, a vigilante superhero from Dope director Rick Famuyiwa, reportedly with hopes that Keanu Reeves will star.
Written by T.J. Fixman (Ratchet & Clank), and produced by Avengers: Infinity War directors Joe and Anthony Russo, the film is described by Deadline as “a new type of vigilante superhero story.” No other details are known about the project.
The report arrives on the heels of news that Famuyiwa has signed on to write and direct a long-discussed adaptation of Black Hole, the acclaimed comic book series by Charles Burns.
Of course, Past Midnight won’t be the first superhero movie Famuyiwa has been associated with: He boarded Warner Bros.’ The Flash in June 2016, following the loss of Seth Grahame-Smith, only to exit the project less than five months later over reported creative differences with the studio. The film, which was retitled Flashpoint last summer, finally settled on Famuyiwa’s successors — Spider-Man: Homecoming screenwriters John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein — in January, although their deal hasn’t been finalized. Ezra Miller is still set to reprise his role as Barry Allen from Justice League, and will possibly be joined by the likes of Gal Gadot, Ray Fisher and Ben Affleck.
