The movie is based on a 2010 New Yorker short story by Goerge Saunders titled Escape From Spiderhead and was penned by 6 Underground and Deadpool scribes Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Directing the flick will be Joseph Kosinski – best known for Tron: Legacy, Oblivion and Top Gun: Maverick. 

The film’s synopsis reads: “In a state-of-the-art penitentiary run by brilliant visionary Steve Abnesti (Chris Hemsworth), inmates wear a surgically attached device that administers dosages of mind-altering drugs in exchange for commuted sentences. There are no bars, no cells, or orange jumpsuits. In Spiderhead, incarcerated volunteers are free to be themselves. Until they’re not. At times, they’re a better version. Need to lighten up? There’s a drug for that. At a loss for words? There’s a drug for that, too.”

“But when two subjects, Jeff (Miles Teller) and Lizzy (Jurnee Smollett), form a connection, their path to redemption take a twistier turn, as Abnesti’s experiments start to push the limits of free will altogether.”

In terms of release dates, Netflix says the film will drop on the platform on June 17, 2022.
