Filming on Jude Law and Jason Bateman's 'Black Rabbit' to begin in April

Black Rabbit, the upcoming Netflix drama starring Jude Law and Jason Bateman, is set to begin filming this spring.

The series is scheduled to begin shooting this April, with filming expected to conclude in autumn 2024. An expected release date for the show is yet to be revealed, but it’s likely that it won’t hit the streaming service until spring or summer of next year.

Bateman is set to star in the series, but he will also take up a directorial role for a few episodes. “I’m going to direct the first two and oversee the whole thing,” he told Dax Shepard on the Armchair Expert.

Bateman also explained the show’s premise, sharing, “Jude Law and I play brothers that own a restaurant, kind of, nightclub. There’s a big shoot-out in the first episode, and a couple people die, and there’s ski masks, and you’re trying to figure out who they are.”

The Ozark star is set to grow out his beard and hair for the role, with six weeks of prep ahead of him before filming begins in April.

Last year, Bateman executive produced a number of television shows, including Florida Man and Based on a True Story. He also turned his podcast, SmartLess, into a documentary series titled SmartLess: On the Road.

Bateman will be joined in front of the camera by Law, who has recently starred in fantasy blockbusters such as Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore and Peter Pan & Wendy.
