I Came By

With Under the Shadow (2016) and Wounds (2019) under his belt, British-Iranian filmmaker Babak Anvari made a significant move into the larger budget stratosphere when his third feature film went into production with some Netflix coin. Starring George MacKay, Kelly Macdonald and Hugh Bonneville, I Came By is a neo-noir possible clash of the classes set in an affluent portion of London. Reteaming with Under The Shadow cinematographer Kit Fraser, this was co-written with Namsi Khan. Film4 and New Regency developed the project.

Gist: This follows a rebellious young graffiti artist (George MacKay) who targets the homes of the wealthy elite but discovers a shocking secret that leads him on a journey endangering himself and those closest to him.

Release Date/Prediction: Could Netflix wait until the fall film festival season to premiere the film? If so, perhaps a London BFI premiere and perhaps Toronto seeing that George MacKay is a festival favorite.
