In this brand new featurette for Netflix’s Bright, joining the streaming service this coming Friday, the fearless cast discusses shooting the movie’s mind-blowing action sequences, including an exciting gas station scene, working with director David Ayer, and how Prometheus‘ Noomi Rapace transformed herself into a terrifying villain. Will Smith and Ayer talk about using practical effects, while some behind-the-scenes footage shows Rapace slaughtering an entire SWAT team!
In the film, “Set in an alternate present-day where humans, orcs, elves, and fairies have been coexisting since the beginning of time, this action-thriller directed by David Ayer (Suicide Squad, End of Watch, writer of Training Day) follows two cops from very different backgrounds. Ward, a human (Will Smith), and Jakoby, an orc (Joel Edgerton), embark on a routine night patrol that will alter the future of their world as they know it. Battling both their own personal differences as well as an onslaught of enemies, they must work together to protect a young female elf and a thought-to-be-forgotten relic, which in the wrong hands could destroy everything.”
The Netflix original film, arriving on December 22, also stars Lucy Fry, Edgar Ramirez, Ike Barinholtz, Enrique Murciano, Jay Hernandez, Andrea Navedo, Veronica Ngo, Alex Meraz, Margaret Cho, Brad William Henke, Dawn Olivieri, and Kenneth Choi.
The film is written by Max Landis (Chronicle, Victor Frankenstein). David Ayer, Eric Newman, and Bryan Unkeless serve as producers.
