The Sky (High)’s the limit for Daniel Calparsoro and Jorge Guerricaechevarria…
Netflix has acquired the global rights to the 52-year-old Spanish director and the 56-year-old Spanish screenwriter’s feature film Sky High, the leading Spanish film at the domestic box office over the holiday period, trailing only The Croods: A New Age and Wonder Woman 1984 from abroad.
The streamer will develop the project into a new original series, with the film’s creators Calparsoro and Guerricaechevarria set to helm the small-screen adaptation.
The television series will pick up where the film drops off.
Netflix is teaming once again with the film’s producers, Vaca Films, having previously commissioned the company’s thriller series The Mess You Leave Behind.
Sky High tracks a small group of thieves who somehow manage to stay one step ahead of the Madrid police. The feature stars Spanish superstar Luis Tosar and rising stars Miguel Herran and Carolina Yuste.
Casting for the series hasn’t been announced, and it’s not yet clear if the trio will return for the adaptation.
