While addressing the fact that he is not producing the Dora the Explorer movie, as some reports have said, Michael Bay’s website has posted a 6 Underground photo that is being placed on the chairbacks of the seats for the cast and crew on the Skydance Media and Netflix production.
Directed by Michael Bay (Transformers films), 6 Underground will star Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool films). The action film is based on an original idea from writers and executive producers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, best known for their work on Deadpool and Deadpool 2. Skydance’s David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Don Granger will produce 6 Underground along with Bay and Ian Bryce.
The ensemble cast to date includes Manuel Garcia-Rulfo (Sicario: Day of the Soldado, Murder on the Orient Express, The Magnificent Seven), Adria Arjona (Triple Frontier, True Detective, Pacific Rim Uprising), Dave Franco (6 Balloons, Neighbors, Now You See Me), and Corey Hawkins (BlacKkKlansman, 24: Legacy, Straight Outta Compton).
The film, releasing worldwide on Netflix in 2019, marks the first collaboration between Skydance and Netflix for an event level feature film and the first Netflix project for both Michael Bay and Ryan Reynolds.
Skydance has a long-standing relationship with Netflix in television where they produce the critically-acclaimed and Emmy Nominated series Grace and Frankie and the high-concept, strong IP based Emmy Nominated sci-fi series Altered Carbon.
