Netflix wins rights to new Reese Witherspoon film

Pyros is an adaptation of the sic-fi story of the same name.

New sci-fi film Pyros has found a home on Netflix. 

The streaming giant announced yesterday that they’d won the rights to the project after beating out competition like Sony Pictures. 

Pyros is an adaptation of Thomas Pierce’s acclaimed short story of the same name which was published in The New Yorker magazine last year.

It centers on a group of people with indestructible fire suits fused to their spines who are employed by a shady corporation to recover important items from burning houses. 

They’re strictly told to never deviate from their mission but that all changes when the narrator finds and rescues a young boy. 

Pierce himself will write the script while Dark Phoenix director Simon Kinberg and Witherspoon will serve as producers. 

It’s not been confirmed which role she’ll play or who else will star. 

An official release date is also not yet known. 

As well as Pyros, Witherspoon is also set to headline new drama The Morning Show alongside Jennifer Anniston and Steve Carell for Apple TV Plus.
