One of Netflix’s upcoming UK-based productions is I Came By. Netflix has commissioned a new slate of films and TV series coming from UK. The first project to come out of this agreement is a neo-noir thriller titled I Came By that will focus on a young graffiti artist who targets the homes of the wealthy elite uncovering a shocking secret.
Netflix’s I Came By will be directed by BAFTA winner Babak Anvari, who has directed such projects as Under the Shadow, Monsterland and Wounds. Anvari will co-write the movie with Namsi Khan who has worked on such productions as His Dark Materials, Domina and Humans.
Film4 and New Regency developed the project and will executive produce alongside XYZ, which brokered the deal on behalf of the filmmakers.
The project is part of Netflix’s huge push into UK production including creating a huge new creative hub in the form of Shepperton Studios. Fiona Lamptey spoke in August about Netflix’s efforts in the region saying, “Scope and ambition is my topline strategy for the UK,”
