Joe Exotic is the famous character introduced to us as the Tiger King in the Netflix series of the same name.
It seems like this rumour has been taking the rounds since quite some time. If reports are believed to be true, Netflix producers are currently working to put together a standalone Tiger King movie. The movie is also expected to have Ryan Murphy in the crux of all the planning that takes place, as a result of the deal between Netflix and the team who worked behind Tiger King. Little did we know that Tiger King will actually end up making it so big that there will be yet another original film based on the lives of the same characters that tormented us through their nasty, good-for-nothing storyline and exaggerated criminal shots.
The news first came out when a report from Production Weekly, which is believed to be the official blog that releases weekly production schedules for the Netflix original films, confirmed the same. The news came out on the 29th of April and the release also ended up including a list of untitled projects. One of the untitled projects caught the eye of the fans and it was titled none other than Untitled Joe Exotic Project.
After this news came out, there were numerous reports that confirmed the same news that came through including a report published by DailyMail. The production schedule further goes on to add that Ryan Murphy is expected to further release his glamour series called Hollywood on Netflix. The movie will release on May 1st. In addition to this, there will also be a huge slate of other content that is expected to come through Ryan Murphy. Another cast member from this side includes Rob Lowe, who will also be a part of the production team. For those who are unaware, Rob Lowe is the same actor who was also a part of another Netflix original film called Holiday in the Wild. As the reports suggest, the two actors have already been a part of movies together previously. Therefore, it doesn’t seem like they should have a problem in dealing with another project together.
Under the title, we were able to grab an excerpt and description as well. Following is the information that the project consisted:
“Centers on the story of Joseph Maldonado-Passage, aka ‘Joe Exotic,’ a former Oklahoma tiger-zoo owner who’s serving a 22-year prison sentence for his role in a murder-for-hire plot against Carole Baskin, who was trying to shut down his big-cat operation.”
For those who are unaware:
For those who are unaware, Tiger King has been able to generate a lot of revenue for Netflix. In fact, it is considered to be among the biggest hits that Netflix has able to catch during this year. The series, as a whole, has ended up attracting a viewership of roughly 64 million alone. The series has also ended up scoring a special bonus episode. The series is reportedly among the few shows who has been able to score a bonus episode.
