A new movie with a star-studded cast is in the works at Netflix! The upcoming crime drama Pain Hustlers is directed by David Yates and coming our way in October 2023.

Yates is most known for directing the last four films in the Harry Potter series, earning him critical and commercial success, as well as multiple awards. He also worked behind the cameras in the first three films of the Harry Potter prequel series, Fantastic Beasts. So we’re sure this movie is definitely in good hands!

Taking on producing roles in the production are Lawrence Grey and Yates himself. Wells Tower wrote the script. Actress Emily Blunt, Mark Moran, Yvonne Walcott-Yates, Lewis Taylor, and Ben Everar serve as executive producers.

Here’s everything we know about the new Netflix production!

Pain Hustlers synopsis

The story is centered around Liza Drake, a single mom who has lost her job and needs to find a way to provide for her daughter. This leads her to accepting a job at aa failing pharmaceutical start-up that is tangled up in a racketeering scheme. The full synopsis from Netflix can be found below:

"Liza Drake is a blue-collar single mom who has just lost her job and is at the end of her rope. A chance meeting with pharmaceutical sales rep Pete Brenner puts her on an upwards trajectory economically but dubious path ethically as she becomes entangled in a dangerous racketeering scheme. Dealing with her increasingly unhinged boss [Andy García] , the worsening medical condition of her daughter [Chloe Coleman], and a growing awareness of the devastation the company is causing forces Liza to examine her choices. Pain Hustlers is a sharp and revealing look at what some people do out of desperation and others do out of greed."
