Netflix Gets Duplass Brothers to Create 4 Very Mumbly Feature Films

In one of the few things in common they have with Adam Sandler, the Duplass brothers today signed a contract with Netflix to provide the streaming service with four original feature films. The deal went down at Sundance, which is fitting symbolism all around. Just like in Amazon’s own just-announced film plan, the Duplass movies will have a brief theatrical window before debuting on Netflix. To make all these movies and still have time for Togetherness, the brothers will farm some of the work out to their slightly more attractive doppelgängers.
