Netflix Buys ‘Born To Be Murdered’ Starring John David Washington & Alicia Vikander
Netflix has picked up Born to be Murdered, an upcoming thriller directed by Ferdinando Cito Filomarino and starring John David Washington and Alicia Vikander. The film is set to be released in 2021, and not much is known about it yet, aside from the very basic premise.
One of the few confirmed details is that the movie takes place in Athens, and the Epirus region of Greece.
“A vacationing couple fall trap to a violent conspiracy with tragic consequences,” the IMDb description for the movie reads. The site also notes that Washington will be playing a character named Beckett, and Vikander will be playing a character named April.
Despite the little information known about the movie, its big names leave a lot to be excited for.
Born to be Murdered will be Filomarino’s first English-language feature film, though he also worked on films Suspiria, Call Me My Your Name and A Bigger Splash. Washington also starred in Tenet and BlacKkKlansman, earning himself a Golden Globe and other award nominations, and is also set to star in Malcolm & Marie and David O. Russell’s currently unnamed upcoming film. Vikander has been nominated for and won dozens of awards in the past four years, particularly for her roles in Ex Machina and The Danish Girl.
