Carry-On, produced by Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment and starring Kingsman’s Taron Egerton, is one of Netflix’s most anticipated upcoming films. Here’s everything we know about Carry-On so far.
The film will be directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, who has helmed projects including The Shallows, Unknown, Jungle Cruise and Black Adam, both starring Dwayne Johnson.
TJ Fixman penned the first draft of the screenplay, with Michael Green doing the final polish. Fixman is also currently attached to Netflix’s Past Midnight.
