Netflix acquires Duplass Brothers produced film ‘6 Years’ at South by Southwest

Netflix just scored another great find in their ongoing shopping spree of picture deals that has Amazon and Hulu Plus fuming in envy.

The streaming giant just acquired rights for the drama 6 Years, directed by A Teacher director Hannah Fidell, and starring Taissa Farmiga (American Horror Story) and Ben Rosenfield (Boardwalk Empire).

“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,” Netflix’s Ted Sarandos said in a press release.

6 Years will be about a young couple (Farmiga and Rosenfield) who face numerous career opportunities, pulling the pair apart. 6 Years will start streaming exclusively on Netflix sometime this year; we will keep you updated once the actual release date has been confirmed.

6 Years is the first major South by Southwest 2015 deal so far, following Netflix’s four-picture Duplass Brothers deal they negotiated at Sundance 2015. The Duplass Brothers also produced 6 Years, however 6 Years is not one of the films the four-picture deal. Lets hope Netflix will snag some other great finds at the South by Southwest festival this week.
