Greater than something, I’ve wished to present full expression to the novel’s astonishing, singular antiheroine, Cathy Ames.”

Although Netflix has not formally commented on the venture but, Kazan has apparently been writing the restricted sequence over the previous two years, and it is set to be produced by Netflix, Nameless Content material, and Endeavor Content material. Within the wake of latest financial struggles, Netflix execs just lately revealed a mandate to make fewer film initiatives with huge worth tags, however “East of Eden,” with its sensible setting, is probably going not as a lot of a monetary funding for the corporate as its present slate of big-budget motion movies.
