Netflix Buys Emily Blunt-Led Conspiracy Thriller Pain Hustlers.

Netflix is in the final stages of closing a $50 million global rights deal for "Pain Hustlers", a new drama helmed by David Yates and starring Emily Blunt.

"Pain Hustlers" boasts a script by "The True American" writer Wells Tower, and the film is produced by Lawrence Grey through his Grey Matter Productions banner and Wychwood Pictures.
