Netflix acquires rights to Richard Linklater-Glen Powell's Hit Man

Published: 19th September 2023

With a whopping amount of $20 million deal, the streaming giant Netflix has acquired the rights to the upcoming film Hit Man at the Toronto International Film Festival. The film is helmed by acclaimed filmmaker Richard Linklater and features Glen Powell and Adria Arjona in the lead roles. 

Billed as an action comedy, Hit Man has a script that Powell and Linklater co-wrote based on the Texas Monthly magazine article by Skip Hollandsworth. Hit Man tells the story of an undercover Houston police officer who disguised himself as a hitman to resolve some criminal offence. While committed to his duty, he encounters a woman who needs help...circumstances force him to be at both ends of being a police officer and a hitman. 

Powell plays the role of the police officer/ hitman, while Adria Arjona essays the women he encounters. 

Hit Man also features Retta, Austin Amelio, and Molly Bernard in supporting roles.
