With this Netflix deal, The Gentlemen will come full circle as it was originally pitched as a TV series before transforming into a feature film. Here’s everything else we know about Netflix’s The Gentlemen:

The Gentlemen movie follows American ex-pat Mickey Pearson (Matthew McConaughey), who built a highly profitable marijuana empire in London. When word gets out that he’s looking to cash out of the business forever, it triggers plots, schemes, bribery, and blackmail in an attempt to steal his domain out from under him.

While that is the plot of the movie, it still remains to be seen whether the series will follow the exact same plot of have changes due to a larger amount of freedom in screen-time.


Is The Gentlemen movie on Netflix?

Many regions are streaming The Gentlemen at the time of publishing. Regions currently streaming the movie includes:

  • Netflix UK
  • Netflix Canada
  • Netflix Australia
  • Netflix South Korea
  • & more.

We have good news for those in the United States too. Netflix US is set to receive the movie on May 1st, 2022.


Who is cast in The Gentlemen?

As of March 2022, no cast members have been announced for Netflix’s version of The Gentlemen.

Will the original film cast return to their roles?

The original movie starred Matthew McConaughey, Colin Farrell, Charlie Hunnam, Henry Golding, Jeremy Strong, Michelle Dockery, and Hugh Grant. It is not impossible for all of these big stars to return, but a new cast is more likely. What’s also possible is a partial return, where we’d see maybe one or two original actors, but not all of them.

Netflix hasn’t announced any dates for The Gentlemen, but considering its very early development stage, we can probably expect a 2023 release date at the absolute earliest but be wary that projects can be abandoned and face lots of delays.
