The Russo brothers' spy drama has been on a rocky path: it's been in the works since 2018 and was supposed to be a spy universe, with the US version as the backbone and a team of writers from different countries developing local spin-offs (such as the Indian and Italian versions). But last September it was reported that the show's creative team was torn apart by creative differences and that half of the show's creative staff had left.

Russell borrowed creator David Weil from another Amazon show, Hunters, and struggled to keep the reboot to around $75 million. With its $160 million budget already spent, the seven-episode first season is now the second most expensive show ever, behind Amazon's "The Lord of the Rings: The Ring of Power," which cost $250 million for its rights alone.

The drama is co-starred by British actor Richard Madden and Indian-born actor Chapella Jonas. After the shelter named "Citadel" is destroyed by the dark forces, Madden plays a secret agent who loses his memory and hides in the world until he is awakened by his former colleagues and begins to look for a partner to complete his mission...

It sounds cheesy, but the show is the brainchild of Jennifer Salke, Amazon's head of film and television. Ever since she became commander-in-chief of Amazon and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Castle has been an all-or-nothing affair.

John Wick 4, directed by Chad Starski, runs nearly three hours, almost twice as long as the first song. In addition to a host of male stars, including Donnie Yen, some fans went for Rina Sawayama.
