Netflix Lands Worldwide Rights to Next Four Duplass Brothers Films

Jay and Mark Duplass, the veteran American independent filmmakers behind “The One I Love,” “The Overnight,” “Creep,” and “Jeff Who Lives At Home,” are entering into a new agreement with Netflix that gives the streaming giant worldwide rights to their next four upcoming films.

The first film under the deal is an untitled Duplass Brothers-Ray Romano project, which will be released later this year. The pic follows a bittersweet bromance and centers on themes of friendship, mortality, and made-up sports. The film, which stars Mark Duplass and Romano, recently wrapped production.

The untitled project marks Alex Lehmann’s second outing as director — he also helmed Duplass Brothers’ “Blue Jay” — and he co-wrote the script with Mark Duplass. Mel Eslyn, president of Duplass Brothers Productions, is producing with Alana Carithers and Sean Bradley.
