Netflix has just unveiled a slew of new projects at Next on Netflix, and the biggest new announcement of the night is a new science-fiction movie with the working title of Brick. Here’s what we know 

Philip Koch is the creator behind the project, and it serves as his third major Netflix Original project to date. The German writer, producer, and director previously worked on Tribes of Europa, which was sadly canceled after a single season. More recently, he wrote and produced the movie Sixty Minutes alongside Oliver Kienle, who also directed. Brick can be seen listed on his website alongside a slew of other projects in development, such as Wittenberg, Vice, and The Sessions.

The official synopsis for the movie is as follows:

“Tim and Olivia’s apartment building is suddenly surrounded by a mysterious brick wall. They must work with their neighbors to find a way out.”
