Netflix’s recently acquired The Hunt for Atlantis movie will be produced by The Batman director Matt Reeves and 6th & Idaho’s Adam Kassan. Actor Aaron Berg will also be writing and producing the film, which is based on the novel of the same name by Andy McDermott. The Hunt for Atlantis novel is the first in a 15-book series known as Nina Wilde and Eddie Chase series, so Netflix has the potential to develop the series into a film franchise.
Recently, Deadline reported that The Batman director Matt Reeves will be producing The Hunt for Atlantis. Not a lot of information has been revealed about The Hunt of Atlantis as of yet, but based on Reeves’ The Batman trailer and his previous works, fans can expect a thrilling action/adventure film with a lot of mystery. In addition, as Aaron Berg, who was once in talks of directing the Tales from the Borderlands movie, is a comedic actor, audiences can also anticipate some lighthearted jokes and exciting sequences.
With many viewers amazed by The Batman’s trailer and Reeves’ new Batman TV show, Reeves’ involvement in The Hunt for Atlantis is sure to generate a lot of hype for the movie. Reeves also served as an executive producer on 10 Cloverfield Lane and directed War of the Planet of the Apes, both of which are science fiction thrillers that bear some similarities to the concepts in The Hunt for Atlantis, so hopefully the upcoming Netflix film will be as successful as Reeves’ other projects.
The synopsis for The Hunt for Atlantis reads: Years after the disappearance of her parents, brilliant NYU grad student Nina Wilde teams with cavalier ex-SAS British bodyguard Eddie Chase when a tech-billionaire sends them on a globe-trotting race to discover the legendary lost city. Subsequent titles revolved around the pursuit of the mythical sword Excalibur, the great hall of Valhalla, the Fountain of Youth and golden city of El Dorado.
