Having been on an acquiring spree this year, Netflix acquired another star vehicle for Mark Wahlberg and Halle Berry. In an eight-figure deal, Netflix will be producing Our Man From Jersey, which is described as a “blue-collar James Bond”. Not much is known about the movie thus far but we can reveal that production is due to get underway in March 2022 and will be shot in multiple cities.
The movie was conceived by Wahlberg and producer Stephen Levinson, who developed the film during the quarantine. Later, they tapped writer David Guggenheim (Safe House, Designated Survivor) to pen the script and it all clicked perfectly with Netflix willing to spend big money on the pic after seeing a 36-page draft.
We’ve learned that Julian Farino is set to direct the movie according to Variety Insight. The director has worked on numerous projects in the past including Netflix’s Giri/Haji and the upcoming Netflix series Florida Man. Beyond that, Farino has worked on HBO’s Ballers and Entourage.
