Jason Bateman, of Ozark fame, will be teaming up with Jude Law for an upcoming limited series at Netflix titled, Black Rabbit.

According to Deadline, Bateman and Law will also serve as executive producers and star in the series. Bateman is also attached to direct the series.

The announcement was made back in October 2022 that Black Rabbit will hail from Bateman and Michael Costigan’s production studio, Aggregate Films. Moreover, the project will be produced in conjunction with Law and Ben Jackson’s label, Riff Raff Entertainment.

Bateman’s company has also signed a first-look deal with Netflix for film and television projects, per the outlet. This is one of many projects coming from Bateman and his production company. Other notable projects include Florida Man, Dark Wire, Here Comes the Flood, Movie Night, and many more.

Working alongside these companies on the limited series will be Zach Baylin and Kate Susman’s Youngblood Pictures and Automatik Entertainment. Baylin, who will write the series’ script with Susman, is best known for penning the Academy Award-nominated film King Richard and the highly anticipated Creed III.

This will be the first ever collaboration of Bateman and Law after Bateman’s smash-hit on Netflix Ozark, which concluded this year. On the other hand, Law has been a part of his own popular franchises such as Fantastic Beasts and Sherlock Holmes.

As of yet, no release window or start of production for Black Rabbit has been announced.

Kanye West Retains Johnny Depp’s Attorney From Defamation Trial

Kanye West has hired an attorney in the wake of his recent antisemitic remarks.

TMZ reports Ye is retaining Camille Vasquez, one of the attorneys who helped Johnny Depp in his defamation trail with ex-wife Amber Heard. Vasquez, along with her Los Angeles-based law firm Brown Rudnick, will provide Kanye with legal counsel on a “variety of business matters.”

Ye sparked backlash this month by making harmful and offensive comments on social media and in interviews, including tweeting that he planned to go “death con 3 on Jewish people,” a likely reference to DEFCON 3.

“I’m a bit sleepy tonight but when I wake up I’m going death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE,” he wrote. “The funny thing is I actually can’t be Anti Semitic because black people are actually Jew also You guys have toyed with me and tried to black ball anyone whoever opposes your agenda.”

Twitter subsequently removed his tweet for violating its rules. Ye’s latest Drink Champs episode was taken down shortly after premiering this week; it contained antisemitism and misinformation about the death of George Floyd. An already-taped appearance on LeBron James’ The Shop was scrapped for similar reasons.

On Friday, Balenciaga announced it has no “plans for future projects” with West, as Women’s Wear Daily reported that the Kering-owned fashion house had balenciaga-breaks-up-with-ye-anti-semitic-threats-hate-speech-1235397358/” data-ylk=”slk:cut ties with Ye” class=”link “cut ties with Ye, although a specific reason was not provided.

“Balenciaga has no longer any relationship nor any plans for future projects related to this artist,” a Kering rep told the publication.
