HN Entertainment has been able to confirm that production on Oscar-winner Sandra Bullock’s latest Netflix film, a feature adaptation of the British miniseries Unforgiven penned by Mission: Impossible’s Christopher McQuarrie will begin shooting this February in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
Ruth Slater (Bullock) who, released from prison after serving a sentence for a violent crime, re-enters a society that refuses to forgive her past. Facing severe judgment from the place she once called home, her only hope for redemption is finding the estranged younger sister she was forced to leave behind.
Production is said to kick-off on February 3rd and wraps on April 9th.
It will be directed by System Crasher’s Nora Fingscheidt.
Reportedly, the project had originally had Angelina Jolie in mind for the lead role.
The film is untitled and it’s unknown if they’ll use the original title Unforgiven considering the famous Clint Eastwood western shares it and could be confusing to audiences.
McQuarrie is best known for writing for scripts for The Usual Suspects, Valkyrie, and the last two Mission: Impossible films. He’s also set to direct both Mission: Impossible 7 and Mission: Impossible 8 starring Tom Cruise back-to-back next year for Paramount Pictures.
Bullock most recently worked with Netflix on the Susanne Bier film Bird Box.
A lot of Netflix film and television projects have been shooting in the Vancouver area recently.
