Netflix acquires rights to Kodachrome: a movie about the final days of the iconic film

Photo courtesy Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) Netflix has acquired the rights to Kodachrome, an upcoming Jason Sudeikis movie about the last days of the Kodachrome film era. The news was first reported by Deadline, who is claiming that Netflix paid $4 million for the rights and plans a widespread theatrical release that could cover theaters in major regions around the worldincluding the US, UK, Canada, and Japan.

Kodachrome the movie revolves around a father and son on a road trip to get to one of Kodak's photo processing labs before it closes down forever. The screenplay was inspired by a New York Times article about the last lab in the world that was processing the now-iconic film stock; in the movie, the characters are racing against time to try and get four rolls developed before it's too late.

True to the film's theme, Kodachrome was shot on film, not digital, and features the acting talents of Jason Sudeikis, Ed Harris, and Elizabeth Olsen. Here's hoping it comes to a theatre near you. . . and pays proper tribute to the analog legend.
