Simon Kinberg is the king of Commercial writing , He recently directed the ill fated X men Dark Phoenix however the failure of the film has not affected his writing credentials at all.
His spec Here comes the flood was in an epic battle with Studios to Acquire and finally Netflix has won the Battle of the Spec.
The deal is Said to be in the 5 Million range with an addtional 4 million when the attach a Star to it. This is one of the biggest deals where no Stars have been attached.
Multiple offers were made for Here Comes The Flood, which is Kinberg’s first original screenplay since Mr. and Mrs. Smith. It is an elevated, character-driven action love-story heist movie, it’s an upgraded true romance but no one could match netflix.
Kinberg is back to directing with 355 a global spy thriller that he hatched with Jessica Chastain for Universal. They even did the Cannes round and the film was a hot sell.
He also has an untitled tentpole sci-fi series inspired by HG Wells’ The War of the Worlds that he is writing and producing for Apple.
Does this mean Kinberg will no longer be a part of the X men Franchise now that Marvel has officially got the rights back.
