News

Talking about the movie, Mickle said, "Gregory [Weidman] and Geoff’s [Tock] script is such a great mind-bender and beautifully weaves together all my favorite genres. Boyd [Holbrook] is going to eat this role alive and show why he’s one of the best young actors working today. We’re lucky to have an incredibly talented producing team and a home-like Netflix that’s excited to take chances. Any studio that makes 'Okja' has a permanent place in my heart."
