EuropaCorp, owned by filmmaker Luc Besson, may be within Netflix’s sights. EuropaCorp, which recently released the overall unsuccessful Valerian, was created by Besson in 1996 and is one of the largest indie film studios in Europe. Though it has had some success in the past (such as the Taken films), in recent years EuropaCorp has fallen into debt and downsized it’s American branch, instead choosing to stick with their original French demographic.
Recently, Slash Film revealed that Netflix is engaged in “advanced talks” to acquire the company, with talks having begun in January, which at the time was only for a multi-picture deal. Even if Netflix does acquire the studio, Besson would still stay on and retain much of his creative control. Though nothing has been confirmed yet, it looks like Netflix could be getting some brand new content very soon.
