Will Smith and Joel Edgerton to hit Netflix with David Ayer’s Bright

The director of Suicide Squad and End of Watch, David Ayer has joined the ever-expanding catalogue of Netflix Originals with his new film Bright, written by Max Landis (Chronicle) and starring Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, Lucy Fry and Noomi Rapace, set to premiere on the streaming service later this year.

Set in an alternate present-day where humans, orcs, elves and fairies have been coexisting since the beginning of time, the action-thriller follows two cops from very different backgrounds.  Ward, a human (Smith), and Jakoby, an orc (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 first teaser for the Original Film has been released and you can watch it below:

We do have a while to wait, however – Bright won’t premiere until December. In the meantime, to sign up to Netflix, head to their official website.
