It might feel a lot like Christmas, but Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, and Noomi Rapace will be picking up the action this holiday in the Netflix film Bright. In this brand new featurette, the fearless cast of Bright discuss shooting explosive action sequences, including the infamous gas station scene, working with the legendary David Ayer, and how Noomi Rapace is the scariest villain we’ve seen yet. “It’s BIG stars and BIG actions,” says Ayer. From running from LAPD, to amazing fight choreography, Suicide Squad’s director, David Ayer created “crazy entertaining ride” says Joel Edgerton.
Bright captures the story of two LAPD police officers played by Smith (Officer Ward) and Edgerton (Officer Jakoby) fighting off orcs and the powerhouse villain elf played by Noomi Rapace (Leila) to save the world as they know it.
Set in an alternate present-day, this action-thriller directed by David Ayer (Suicide Squad, End of Watch, writer of Training Day) follows two cops from very different backgrounds (Ward, a human played by Will Smith, and Jakoby, an orc played by Joel Edgerton) who embark on a routine patrol night that will ultimately alter the future as their world knows it. Battling both their own personal differences as well as an onslaught of enemies, they must work together to protect a thought-to-be-forgotten relic, which in the wrong hands could destroy everything.
The Netflix film stars Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, Noomi Rapace, Lucy Fry, Edgar Ramirez, Ike Barinholtz, Enrique Murciano, Jay Hernandez, Andrea Navedo, Veronica Ngo, Alex Meraz, Margaret Cho, Brad William Henke, Dawn Oliveri, and Kenneth Choi. The film is directed by David Ayer and written by Max Landis. David Ayer, Eric Newman, and Bryan Unkeless serve as producers.
