ProductionEdit

In August 2010, it was announced that Graham King would produce a feature film adaptation of the 2009 British miniseries Unforgiven through his GK Films banner. Christopher McQuarrie was hired to write the screenplay, which was being tailored for Angelina Jolie to play the lead role.[1][2] In November 2011, Scott Frank was hired to rewrite and direct the film, as McQuarrie was busy directing Jack Reacher.[3][4] In June 2013, it was reported that McQuarrie had returned to the film as writer and director, and would also serve as a producer with King.[5][6]

In November 2019, Sandra Bullock joined the cast of the film and would serve as a producer, with Nora Fingscheidt replacing McQuarrie as director, and Netflix distributing.[7] In December 2019, Viola Davis, Aisling Franciosi and Rob Morgan joined the cast of the film.[8] In February 2020, Vincent D'Onofrio, Jon Bernthal, Richard Thomas, Linda Emond and Emma Nelson joined the cast of the film.[9]

FilmingEdit

Principal photography began in February 2020.[10][11]
