Hit Man

Netflix Acquires ‘Hit Man’ From Richard Linklater and Glen Powell

It sure seems like one of the surprises of the fall film festival season has been Hit Man. Co-written by Richard Linklater (who also directs) and Glen Powell (who stars), the movie has charmed audiences at both the Venice Film Festival and Toronto International Film Festival. At TIFF, our own editor Joey Magidson called it the best of the fest. You can read his rave review here. As it gets set to make a stateside debut at the New York Film Festival, it now has a home.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Netflix has picked up Hit Man. The streamer beat out several other potential buyers, mostly other streamers apparently, and is paying $20 million for it. If the film is as good as Joey and company say, maybe they’ll rush it out this year for some late awards contention? If not, it could very well be one of their major horses in 2024. Either way, the movie is coming our way soon.
