Netflix has acquired “Kodachrome,” a Mark Raso-directed drama starring Ed Harris, Jason Sudeikis and Elizabeth Olsen, an individual with knowledge of the acquisition told TheWrap.
The streaming service bought the rights to the film in a multimillion dollar deal. “Kodachrome” is set during the final days of the still photo development system known as Kodachrome. When it ended and people hadn’t developed the rolls of the film, those stills were gone forever. At the same time, the film focuses on a father and son’s relationship as they go on a road trip to reach the Kansas photo lab before it closes.
Netflix is set to release the film with a theatrical release, intended for an awards rollout. Netflix got the rights in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Italy, Benelux, Japan, India, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Sweden and Iceland.
