TechCrunch article “There’s a lot of science fiction that doesn’t actually exist in our world.
So the only way that people can get into those worlds and see the stories in a way that they can understand them is to get to the science fiction movies,” said Chris Conley, who has been a director for Netflix’s science fiction series “The Crown” and produced “The Edge of Tomorrow” for the streaming service.
“If you want to do something that’s different from anything else on TV, then there’s no reason not to get into it.”
Netflix has been working with several science fiction filmmakers on “The Punisher” series, and Conley hopes that the network will pick up the mantle soon.
Netflix, of course, is also working with other producers on its “Parks and Recreation” reboot.
Conley said that the “Pawn Stars” and “Mortal Kombat” movies are both on Netflix right now.
Conleys hope that Netflix’s “Punisher” is a good fit for “The Wire” creator David Simon, who is also producing the series.
Simon, whose credits include “Downton Abbey” and other TV shows, said he and Netflix were already talking about what to do for Netflix with the “The Defenders.”
“We’re working on a really big thing right now,” Simon told EW.
“We’ve talked to Netflix about a movie.
It’s really cool.”
