Netflix Picks up Richard Linklater & Glen Powell’s Hit Man for $20 Million

Streaming giant Netflix has just picked up the distribution rights for director Richard Linklater’s critically acclaimed action comedy, Hit Man, for a cool $20 million (via Deadline). Hit Man premiered at the 80th Venice International Film Festival earlier this month, and has since been praised by critics, with Netflix now nabbing the right and thus presenting audiences with the story of Top Gun: Maverick star Glen Powell’s undercover police officer who poses as a reliable hitman to arrest those trying to hire him.
