THE HURT LOCKER Director Kathryn Bigelow prepares her next film for Netflix

The first woman to win the Oscar for best director, Kathryn Bigelow, has signed on to direct his next film on Netflix. The streamer confirmed the project during its upfront presentation to advertisers Wednesday afternoon in New York. No title or plot details have been revealed.

The project marks Bigelow’s first feature film since the 2017 police brutality film Detroitproduced and distributed by Annapurna Pictures.

While that film received positive reviews, it failed to capture the awards and commercial success of the director’s previous two works: the controversial 2012 CIA manhunt thriller Zero Dark Thirty and the acclaimed 2009 Iraq War feature film The wounded locker, which won six categories at the 2010 Academy Awards, including Best Picture. It was for Wounded locker that Bigelow became the first woman ever to win the Oscar for best director.

Along with Bigelow’s new feature, Netflix’s movie announcements at its upfront presentation also included confirmation of a Happy Gilmore sequel with Adam Sandler returning as the protagonist, as well as an adaptation of Ruth Ware’s suspense novel The woman in cabin 10 played by Keira Knightley
