The studio has announced that the film The Mothership, which was in the midst of a lengthy post-production process and facing numerous delays, could not be completed. It is unlikely that the film will be released. Despite this setback, Halle Berry’s relationship with Netflix continues, and she will soon appear in the action film The Union for the streaming platform. Netflix has expressed its commitment to genre storytelling, as evidenced by its recent release of Halle Berry’s directorial debut, Bruised. The studio has also confirmed its dedication to making bold and significant decisions in the genre space, citing an exciting lineup of upcoming science fiction, genre, and thriller films.
The Mothership was initially unveiled in February 2021, with noted Oscar-nominated screenwriter Matthew Charman, known for his work on Bridge of Spies, making his directorial debut. The film’s synopsis follows Sara Morse (played by Halle Berry), who is searching for her husband and the truth behind his mysterious disappearance from their rural farm after she discovers a strange alien object beneath their home. In addition to Halle Berry, the film features Molly Parker and Omari Hardwick in key roles.
The studio has emphasized its commitment to genre storytelling, citing several upcoming projects, including Fair Play (acquired from MRC), The Killer, Leave the World Behind, and Rebel Moon. Netflix is known for its popular science fiction, genre, and thriller films like The Adam Project, Bird Box, and The Mother.
