Release Date, Cast, and More
Mark your calendars for October 27, 2023, as "Pain Hustlers" is set to premiere on Netflix. Directed by David Yates, the film revolves around the story of a single mother who joins a failing pharmaceutical start-up. The film is inspired by the May 2018 New York Times Magazine article written by Evan Hughes and his 2022 book, "The Hard Sell." Prior to its Netflix release, the movie will make its debut in select theaters in the US on October 20, 2023.
In "Pain Hustlers," Emily Blunt takes on the role of Liza Drake, an ambitious dreamer, while Chris Evans portrays Pete Brenner, a character described as superficial and transactional. The star-studded cast also includes Catherine O'Hara, Andy García, Jay Duplass, Brian d'Arcy James, Chloe Coleman, Aubrey Dollar, Amit Shah, and Willie Raysor, among others. The film offers a sharp and insightful exploration of the choices people make, driven by desperation or greed.
Director David Yates shared his thoughts on the casting, stating, "Emily was probably the most prepared actor I've ever worked with. She comes to set with a game plan every single day and knows exactly what she wants to explore in the architecture of the human being that she's playing." He further commented on casting Chris Evans, highlighting the contrast between his clean-cut, heroic image and his role as a pharma representative with dubious intentions in the film.
