After a $100 million bidding battle, Crime 101, which is said to feature Chris Hemsworth and Pedro Pascal, has a studio. Based on a Don Winslow book of the same name, the crime thriller will follow the pursuit of a jewel thief down the Pacific Coast Highway. It was announced earlier this week that Amazon and Netflix would compete in a $100 million bidding battle for the movie Crime 101.

It has finally been decided who will win the bid for Crime 101, according to Puck. The source claims that Amazon outbid other bidders for the film Crime 101 by providing about $90 million, which is less than the previously estimated $100 million. Interestingly, Amazon reportedly offered more money for the film than Netflix did, but the producers chose Amazon instead since the latter platform provided the possibility of a theatrical distribution while Netflix insisted on screenplay changes.

Chris Hemswoth’s Extraction films, with the Thor star as the franchise’s face, have proven to be Netflix’s most fruitful franchise-building endeavor. With almost 129.3 million views, the second Extraction movie entered the list of the ten most-watched English-language films on Netflix ever. With 135.7 million views, the original movie, which is now at No. 9, is slightly below it. The franchise’s position as the uncontested Netflix monarch is guaranteed by the aggregate total views for both films.

On the other hand, we have Pedro Pascal who has recently worked in the HBO series The Last Of Us. Pascal’s performance in the series was incredible and stunning. The TV adaptation of the Video Game has been a massive hit and fans are eagerly waiting for the second part. The world of The Last of Us is one in which a parasitic fungus that has evolved to transfer hosts from ants to people is the cause of humanity’s extinction, not a flu-like virus. The post-apocalyptic setting of the program follows Joel, portrayed by Pedro Pascal, a Texan construction worker, and Ellie, played by Bella Ramsey, a 14-year-old girl, as they travel through a devastated US.

With both the actors, Chris Hemsworth and Pedro Pascal, joining forces, it will be a movie with the world’s one of the best A-listers as they already have a massive fanbase. It would be thrilling to watch the two impeccable stars share the screen.
