Windfall On Netflix: After Emily In Paris, Lily Collins In A Hitchcock-style Noir

Windfall is the name of Lily Collins’ upcoming film, for which Netflix has just bought the broadcasting rights. A project that contrasts with the lighter series Emily in Paris, season 2 of which is currently filming.

From colorful and trendy outfits from Emily in Paris to a Hitchcockian film noir for Lily Collins. On Instagram, the American star announced that Netflix had bought the broadcasting rights to Windfall, an “intimate” production shot in full quarantine with Jason Segel and Jesse Plemons, all under the direction of his companion in the city, Charlie McDowell.

“I’m so happy to finally be able to tell you about a movie I had the chance to shoot a few months ago with Charlie McDowell, Jason Segel and Jesse Plemons. I’ve never been part of a project so intimate, collaborative and liberating.

The brilliant script written by Andrew Kevin Walker and Justin Lader gave me the opportunity to step into the shoes of a character totally different from what I have played in the past. Windfall was imagined, created, and completed during my forties and I can only be grateful for the hard work and determination that went into turning all that love of work into reality.

Thanks to Netflix for believing in our unconventional film. It was a beautiful experience that turned into a weird but amazing piece of art and I can’t wait for you all to see it… “

Not much is known about this feature film except that it follows a couple on vacation, who realizes upon their arrival that the place is being robbed. Windfall is presented by its creators as a Hitchcockian noir thriller, so we can expect some scares. Director Charlie McDowell is in any case familiar with this kind of film, as The Discovery and The One I Love (both already on Netflix) testify.

According to Deadline, Netflix would have paid an 8-figure check to afford the rights. No release date has yet been announced.
