Netflix Lands Adam McKay’s Average Height, Average Build

Netflix has acquired the star-studded comedy, Average Height, Average Build, from director Adam McKay. Robert is set to play a serial killer who enlists a lobbyist to change laws that will allow him to get away with murder easily. Other cast members are Amy Adams, Robert Downey Jr., Forest Whitaker, and Danielle Deadwyler. So excited for this project!

Following the success of Don’t Look Up, Netflix and Adam McKay are reuniting as the streamer has acquired Adam McKay’s new star-studded directorial feature, Average Height, Average Build. The film stars Robert Pattinson, Amy Adams, Robert Downey Jr., Forest Whitaker and Danielle Deadwyler. McKay, who has written the script, will direct and produce under his Hyperobject Industries banner with Kevin Messick.

Much the way that the McKay-crafted series Succession and his films Don’t Look Up and The Big Short told entertaining stories that reflect what’s going on in the world, Average Height, Average Build sounds like a pretty ingenious marriage of a black comedy premise with the corruption that rife in politics.

Pattinson will play a serial killer who enlists a lobbyist (Adams) to change laws that will allow him to get away with murder more easily. Downey’s role is a retired cop who won’t give up on the murders, and the killer tries to prevent him from dogging his trail now that he’s hung up his gun. The serial killer turns himself into a cause celebre, a Mr. Smith Goes to Washington figure shielding his true motives.
