The biggest names in the film industry are putting their heads together for a meeting to discuss a possible deal to release a feature film on the streaming service.
On Wednesday, the Wall Street Journal reported that Sony Pictures Entertainment, which owns and produces the popular films “Captain Phillips” and “The Wolf of Wall Street,” is interested in bringing back the “Biggest Loser” reality show to Netflix, which is owned by Amazon founder Jeff Bezos.
The story said that the show will return for its second season after the show’s original run on Amazon ended in 2018.
It’s not clear how many episodes Netflix will be able to stream, but it’s expected to be a big part of the deal.
Netflix has more than 1.2 billion subscribers.
“I think that the film business has gone through a very significant period of transition, and a lot of that is due to the fact that people don’t want to spend their time on a lot and a huge amount of time is spent on TV and movies,” Amazon’s Jeff Bezos told the Journal in an interview last year.
“That’s not what the film and TV industry was built on.
We’re looking for a way to bring the films that people love to life on the internet.”
Amazon, which has become a major player in film and television, is not the only major player looking to make films on Netflix.
Amazon has released five films on the service so far this year, including “Avengers: Age of Ultron” and the upcoming “The Shape of Water.”
Netflix also announced a film slate in March that included the upcoming release of “The Big Short” and an upcoming film adaptation of the book “No Country for Old Men.”
Netflix is currently offering a $6-per-month movie pass for new subscribers that gives them access to more than 2,400 films, including new releases, documentaries, and short films.
