Netflix made a deal with Amblin Partners in June 2021, which would result in the production company making a set number of films for the OTT giant. And Carry On starring Jason Bateman and Taron Egerton is the first product of the multi-million deal. While this deal is official and announced, there also seems to be a deal between Netflix’s most watched and Jason Bateman, which requires him to make movies or a series that becomes a global favorite.
This is obviously just a fan observation, but deal or no deal, Bateman is back on Netflix. Not long after wrapping Ozark, Jason Bateman is now a confirmed cast in Carry On. The flick is an action thriller set up during Christmas, which, if you have been noticing the pattern, makes up another factor why the movie is bound to break the charts. Bateman may have saved Christmas in The Office Party, but the actor has different plans now.
Is Jason Bateman playing the bad guy in Carry On?
With a multi-decade acting experience in his pocket, there is almost nothing the Ozark actor cannot do. But as witnessed through his character in Ozark, the actor has a knack for playing characters that have A+ manipulation techniques. Therefore, when fans heard that Jason Bateman will be the one to blackmail Taron Egerton, who works as a TSA agent in the movie, their anticipation only grew bigger.
While the nitty-gritty of the project has yet to be revealed, the plot is roughly centered around a mysterious package that gets boarded on a flight on Christmas Day.
Jason Bateman, Taron Egerton, Logan Marshall-Green, and Sofia Carson, whom fans loved in Purple Hearts, are not the only stars in the movie. Jaume Collet Serra, the director of Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam and the critically acclaimed psychological horror Orphan is also directing Carry On, so you know what you are getting into. Following the finale of Ozark, Bateman has mostly kept busy with his production work.
Carry On is the first official confirmed after Ozark to have bagged the Arrested Development actor as a cast member. With Golden Globes in their pockets and blockbusters such as Kingsman: The Secret Service and Horrible Bosses in their filmography, it will be great fun to see Jason Bateman and Taron Egerton up against each other. The release date and more details about Carry On have yet to be released. Meanwhile, you can binge-watch Ozark on Netflix.
