Ryan Reynolds has revealed that his Michael Bay-directed feature 6 Underground will debut on Netflix on December 13. The Deadpool star joked that it would be coming to a “mailbox near you” with a picture of an old Netflix DVD envelope. A trailer also hit today.
The plot details on 6 Underground have previously been kept under wraps, but it is set to follow six individuals from all around the globe, each the very best at what they do, chosen not only for their skill, but for a unique desire to delete their pasts to change the future. The team is brought together by an enigmatic leader (Reynolds), whose sole mission in life is to ensure that, while he and his fellow operatives will never be remembered, their actions damn sure will.
It sees Reynolds reunite with Deadpool executive producers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. The big-budget movie also stars Mélanie Laurent (Inglorious Basterds), Payman Maadi (A Separation), Corey Hawkins (BlacKkKlansman), Adria Arjona (Triple Frontier), Manuel Garcia-Rulfo (Sicario: Day Of The Soldado), Ben Hardy (X-Men: Apocalypse) Lior Raz (Fauda), and Dave Franco (Now You See Me).
Skydance’s David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Don Granger will produce along with Bay and Ian Bryce. This is the first major feature collaboration between Ellison’s Skydance and Netflix after series collaborations on Grace And Frankie and Altered Carbon. It’s also a Netflix first for Reynolds and Bay.
