Will Smith may have found his new niche, and his director buddy David Ayer is taking the ride along with him. After a successful pairing for the two on Warner Bros’ genre film Suicide Squad, they’ve teamed back up for a cop film set in a world where humans, orcs, elves, and fairies have been co-existing since the beginning of time. The trailer seems like it could be an interesting movie, but they touch on the supernatural side of things so lightly that it’s hard to tell how big a part of the film it will be.
The film is set for a Netflix exclusive release, something that’s new for Smith, and boasts an ensemble cast including Joel Edgerton, Noomi Rapace, Lucy Fry, Edgar Ramirez, Margaret Cho, and Ike Barinholtz. The movie is set to stream this December.
