Netflix has acquired worldwide rights, with some exclusions, for "The Personal History of David Copperfield" star Dev Patel's directorial debut "Monkey Man." https://t.co/WiBAPqIBiJ— Variety (@Variety) March 12, 2021
In "God I really wanted to make the title seem like A24 sold The Green Knight to Netflix so we may see it within our lifetimes HA HA." news, instead, have Dev Patel's first directorial feature.
"Monkey Man" will debut in most territories around the world. Those other territories already have deals in place for it.
In the India-set film, Patel plays an unlikely hero who emerges from prison to take on a world enmeshed in corporate greed and eroding spiritual values, seeking revenge from those who took everything from him many years ago.
The film debuts in 2022. So, honestly, probably still sooner than The Green Knight if A24 pushes it back.
