Netflix Picks Up '6 Years' at the SXSW Film Festival

Netflix has acquired worldwide rights to Hannah Fidell's 6 Years, which just had its world premiere at the SXSW Film Festival. The film features Lindsay Burdge, Joshua Leonard, Dana Wheeler-Nicholson, Jennifer Lafleur and Peter Vack. It was produced by Duplass Brothers Productions, Kelly Williams, Jonathan Duffy, and Andrew Logan in association with Arts & Labor. Netflix, which signed a four-picture deal with Jay and Mark Duplass in January, will debut the feature later this year. "We are thrilled to bring this terrific film 6 Years to audiences at SXSW and Netflix, and to extend our deal with the Duplass brothers in the process," Ted Sarandos, Nextflix chief content officer, said.
