Have you seen the movie yet? If you haven’t, then please watch it, it is terrific.
Netflix is holding no card to its chest and is gearing up to escalate its challenge to Hollywood. A marquee franchise akin to the reach of Marvel’s Avengers is what they want right now to outclass the likes HBO, Hulu, a newly arrived Disney+ and Peacock. Netflix not only has plans to be the best streaming service on the market but has made it amply clear that they are hunting for a franchise that will rival any franchise that major studios from Hollywood possess. The arrival of competent movies that have proliferated in the last few months gives Netflix plenty to hope for.
The rumors surrounding Ryan Reynolds 6 Underground may have cooled down yet it will be a matter of surprise if the sequel doesn’t arrive very soon. Charlize Theron of Monster fame has also publicly stated that she and the rest of the entire cast are open to a possible sequel of Old Guard.
So the main news is that a film named Project Power which has been getting excellent reviews since the time it arrived on Netflix has already started a buzz for a possible TV series spin-off apart from a sequel which is anticipated because the film ended after leaving a door open for more stories. It has been reported that Netflix believes that the concept of the film has some potential to make itself a highly successful franchise. The franchise which might fit in Netflix’s highly ambitious plans for the future.
Project Power was budgeted on $85 million and has been a blockbuster on Netflix since Friday and is currently the most popular title on the streaming site. It is widely believed that the filmmakers intentionally left a door open for further adventures because they already have an idea for the sequel, and they held themselves back from going too deep into the story. It has been confirmed from many sources that the buzz surrounding Netflix plans to create an entire universe out of the “Project Power is “pretty much real.”
According to the sources, Netflix wants to dive deeper into that “drug” that gives people superpower for five minutes in the film and how that drug will change the world that was shown in the movie. The best way to do it will be to make a more extended version of the story. A TV series branched off from the film will give storytellers a chance to expand the story about that extraordinary drug with more exquisite details.
Project Power is being opinionated at the apex among all Netflix original movies. It also has been regarded as a franchise material. If the future projects could include a mythological part in the adventure, it will guarantee a definite viewership and perhaps soaring popularity as well. The question is, will it happen? Of course, as we know, it is still at the development stage, and many other things need to go to “Netflix” before it can finally emerge on the streaming site. Regardless of that, fans duly expect at the very least a fully-fledged sequel that can match the prowess of the film that arrived on Friday.
One more thing to add here is that Netflix has made plans to bring in fresh faces for the spin-off series and perhaps offer a cameo to the stars of the film if and when needed.
Another reminder is that the talk of a spin-off series is still at a premature stage, and that means that it is not a certainty that the spin-off will manifest itself on the streaming site. There is a lot of work that needs to happen before we finally heave a sigh of relief that a spin-off is indeed happening.
However, given the success of the first film and the potential it possesses, it is safe to say that it will be foolish from the Netflix side not to give Project Power a long serious look that it deserves.
The film is available on Netflix and has achieved number 1 position in the list of most popular titles.
The plot of the story involves a drug called “Power” that gives people extraordinary superpowers for five minutes and deals with a soldier and cop in their endeavor to find the source of the drug.
The movie has a brilliant ensemble cast of verified actors that include Jamie Foxx (Django Unchained), Joseph Gordon Levitt (Snowden), Dominique Fishback, Rodrigo Santoro, Colson Baker, Allen Maldonado, Amy Landecker and Courtney B Vance.
Joseph Gordon Levitt has experience in superhero films before, having already worked in the finale of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy called The Dark Knight Rises. The 500 Days of Summer actor is also known for playing a pivotal role of Arthur in one more film of Christopher Nolan; Inception.
