Crime 101, featuring Chris Hemsworth and Pedro Pascal in leading roles, has officially found a studio home following a fierce $100 million bidding war. This Crime thriller is based on Don Winslow's tale of the same name, whose story trails around a search for a jewel thief on the Pacific Coast Highway. A week before, it was stated that Crime 101 would gain a whopping amount of $100 million amid a bidding war with both Netflix and Amazon to run for the movie.
The Crime 101 bid battle has been fixed now. As per the sources, Amazon has won the bid of Crime 101 after providing $90 million for the film, below the $100 million initially stated.
Remarkably, Netflix provided more money for the film. However, the production chose Amazon after the last platform that gave them hope for theatrical release when demanded script versions by the Netflix streaming channel. Follow dailypopmix.com to continue the whole story tale in one go.
The Next Production For Crime 101
Though there are few known specifics on Crime 101, the proposed casting is sufficient to become part of the exciting aspect. The novella for the film revolves around only two key characters: Detective Lou Lubesnick and the elusive jewel thief he's determined to apprehend.
It remains to be seen whether Pascal and Hemsworth will take on the roles of Lubesnick or the thief, but the thriller holds great potential, with these two formidable stars anchoring its core. There is no surprise to say that the two main streaming platforms were fascinated by 'Crime 101'. The production will now move ahead with Amazon, though there's no guarantee that it will begin filming at any time sooner.
Hemsworth Will Remain On Board For A Thriller Plot In Crime 101
The SAG-AFTRA strike is still ongoing, which may impact Crime 101's production. While it's uncertain how much the strike will affect the show, at least some involved in the production will likely be affected. The Puck report provided a couple of startling speculations on the future of Crime 101.
Based on sources, there is a chance to drop Hemsworth out of the project. With Amazon picking up the rights to Crime 101, Chris Hemsworth's involvement in the production still needs to be confirmed. If he doesn't take on the role, it would be a setback for the project's chances of success, which heavily relies on a strong main cast. Here's to hoping Hemsworth stays on board and helps bring the intimate thriller to life.
