Sandra Bullock Returns to Netflix for Unforgiven Adaptation

-

Academy Award winner Sandra Bullock is set to star in an untitled Netflix project to be directed by Nora Fingscheidt (Systemsprenger / System Crasher). The movie was written by Christopher McQuarrie (Mission: Impossible films) and adapted from the BAFTA Award-nominated, three-part British mini-series Unforgiven (not to be confused with the Clint Eastwood film).

The Unforgiven adaptation is described as follows: “Released from prison after serving a sentence for a violent crime, Ruth Slater (Bullock) re-enters a society that refuses to forgive her past. Facing severe judgment from the place she once called home, her only hope for redemption is finding the estranged younger sister she was forced to leave behind.”

The untitled project is produced by Academy Award winner Graham King for GK Films, Bullock for Fortis Films, and Veronica Ferres for Construction Film. The executive producers are Nan Morales, Nicola Shindler, Sally Wainwright, and Colin Vaines.

Bullock’s latest feature, Bird Box, remains one of Netflix’s top performing films and was watched by over 80 million accounts in its first four weeks.

Fingscheidt made her directorial debut with Systemsprenger, which premiered at the 2019 International Berlin Film Festival where she won the Silver Bear Alfred Bauer Award for new perspectives in cinema. Since then, the film has won 24 international awards and was selected to represent Germany at the 2020 Academy Awards.
