Project Power focuses on a drug dealer (Fishback), police officer (Gordon-Levitt) and ex-soldier (Foxx) that come together to stop a syndicate from supplying a newly-developed pill that gives the user superpowers for five minutes.

Another fan of the Netflix film said: “Guys, I just watched #ProjectPower on @netflix and I recommend. I am a big superhero fan and I enjoyed the representation of different types of powers. I wonder if they will do a sequel? #ProjectPowerNetflix”.
Netflix’s Project Power was written by Matt Tomlin and directed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman (Catfish, Paranormal Activity 3 and 4). In a recent The Hollywood Reporter interview, Tomlin talked about his writing process.
“I knew there was this thing with the pill. That was kind of the first bit for me. You don’t get to choose your power. There was something that felt really electric, really palpable about that. The time thing came a little bit later. For awhile it was, ‘you take this pill and that’s it? But OK, how long does that last?’ If it lasts an hour, OK that’s a certain kind of movie – but when I started thinking about the real obstacles that characters would have to go through, it became this thing of, ‘The shorter this lasts, the more fun.'” he explained.
Project Power is currently on Netflix.
