Bright, described as a “scripted cop thriller with fantastical elements”, will land exclusively on the streaming service, reports Deadline. Though there could also be a limited theatrical launch. 

It’s a major coup for the service, who reportedly beat Warner Bros to the rights by paying upwards of $90 million. 

The Los Angeles-set police thriller will see Smith reunite with his Suicide Squad director David Ayer, while Victor Frankenstein writer Max Landis will pen the script. Joel Edgerton will also star.
