Lina Brouneus, director of co-production and acquisitions at Netflix, said: “We can’t wait to work with the extremely talented creators Shady El-Hamus and Jeroen Scholten van Aschat, (who) brings the entertaining story of Richie Rich to life.”
El-Hamus added: “It is a great honour as young filmmakers to have the opportunity to create the first Dutch Netflix film. The collaboration with Netflix gives us the opportunity to make a film for a bigger and global audience.”
The film is a fast-paced crime story with comedic elements about the contemporary obsession with status and success. No dates for production or the expected premier were given.
