It shouldn’t be a surprise, but Adam McKay‘s latest project, Average Height, Average Build, has landed at Netflix. The news shook the entertainment world as it surprisingly dropped on a Sunday. Still, it seems that Netflix has been very keen on McKay’s latest movie after his last Netflix original, Don’t Look Up, was nominated for several Academy Awards, despite negative reviews.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Average Height, Average Build will follow a serial killer who “uses political lobbyists to change laws to make it easier for him to kill.” Robert Pattinson is slated to play the killer, while Amy Adams, Robert Downey Jr, Forest Whitaker, and Danielle Deadwyler are also a part of the cast.
McKay is currently writing the screenplay and will direct the movie, which is billed as another ensemble film, à la Don’t Look Up and will tackle the subjects of crime and political corruption. McKay’s Don’t Look Up looked at the climate crisis through a satirical lens, while his crowd-pleasing Best Picture nominee The Big Short focused on the 2008 Housing Crisis through Christian Bale‘s Michael J. Burry.
