Ricky Gervais Film Special Correspondents Will Be a Netflix Exclusive


Special Correspondents, a comedy film from Ricky Gervais that stars Eric Bana, will be released as a Netflix exclusive in 2016.

Bana plays a radio journalist, job on the line and desperate for a story, who fakes war reports about a rebel uprising in South America — including his own kidnapping — while safely hiding out above a New York restaurant.

Although Special Correspondents has been in the works since 2014, and is in fact a remake of a 2009 French film of the same name, its timing is serendipitous given the obvious similarity to the faked “helicopter fire” story from Brian Williams that came to light in February.

We’ll be keeping an eye out for more news, specific release dates, and trailers, and will update you here.
