First look at Ricky Gervais’ Netflix Film ‘Special Correspondents’ | Film News
Netflix have released these images revealing the first look at the upcoming Ricky Gervais original film, Special Correspondents. Gervais is on acting, directing and writing duties as he takes on a remake of the 2009 French film Envoyés Très Spéciaux.
Gervais stars as Albert Finch, the sidekick to struggling radio host Frank Bonneville, played by Eric Bana. Together they take artistic license to a new extreme by using a South American uprising to their vocational advantage as they secretly remain safe in New York. The film will also star Vera Farmiga, Benjamin Bratt and America Ferrera.
Netflix’s foray into original films has been a mixed bag so far with the awards worthy Beasts of No Nation starring a superb Idris Elba and the terrible Adam Sandler Western The Ridiculous Six. I am looking forward to reviewing Special Correspondents, and I am hoping it is finally a suitable movie vehicle to showcase Gervais’ talents.
Special Correspondents will be available to see on Netflix from April 29, 2016
