GUNPOWDER MILKSHAKE: Netflix Acquires the High-Octane Female Driven Actioner with Franchise Potential! (Update: The Movie Receives an R Rating)
By: John M Jerva
Here’s another movie that I’m interested in seeing and up until now, I kind have forgot about it since it’s been a while since there’s been any traction on it. Deadline is reporting that Netflix is at it again in the action genre by acquiring the female led action pic Gunpowder Milkshake. The news dropped today although I just recently saw it as I’ve been busy with a slew of reviews and interviews but I definitely wanted to run this as it’s clearly a must see flick with the level of talent involved.
One interesting tidbit is that a sequel is already in the works even before the film has seen the light of day. Netflix is looking at making this title another franchise hopeful for them as they look to win the streaming wars that are raging as of late. Netflix also recently acquired two sequels to the Rian Johnson helmed Knives Out which was a sleeper hit last year. That deal cost them somewhere in the ballpark of $450 million.
Last year Netflix brought their action A game with titles like The Old Guard with Charlize Theron and Extraction starring Chris Hemsworth which was billed as the most watched movie of 2020. Action hits keep on coming and with the pandemic still playing havoc with cinemas, the streaming services are reaping the benefits of people staying home more.
Navot Papushado helmed the pic and also co-wrote along with Ehud Lavski. Quentin Tarantino called Gunpowder Milkshake one of the best action flicks of the year and it was a success with audiences during it festival run.
