Do you want to be a superhero? Netflix will be releasing Project Power, a new Original in August 2020. You can find everything about Project Power here, including its plot, cast and trailer as well as the Netflix release date.
Project Power, a Netflix Original Superhero-Drama Film directed by Henry Roost and Ariel Schulman is coming soon.
Netflix was the winner of a bidding battle against many studios in 2017 to acquire Project Power's spec script from Mattson Tomlin.
Project Power should make Netflix subscribers even more happy after the recent success of The Old Guard. One of the most anticipated releases of the Summer, we can’t wait to binge on Project Power ourselves.
Project Power is available for streaming on Netflix worldwide starting Friday 14 August 2020.
Project Power is now available on Netflix! Netflix will not be able to stream the super-drama at midnight. Instead, Netflix will time its latest releases according to Pacific Standard Time (PST).
If you live in Europe you’ll receive Project Power in the morning. For subscribers in Far East Asia, and Oceania, new Originals will arrive in the late afternoon and evenings.

Netflix has provided the synopsis of Project Power:
New Orleans is abuzz with the news of a new mysterious pill that grants superpowers to all users. The catch: You don’t know what will happen until you take it. Some people experience bulletproof skin and invisibility. Others have a more severe reaction. When the drug causes crime to escalate to dangerous levels in the area, Joseph Gordon-Levitt (local cop) team up with Dominique Fishback (teenager dealer) and Jamie Foxx (former soldier) to battle power with power. They also risk taking the pill to stop those responsible.

You can forgive yourself if Project Power was based on one of the numerous comic book adaptations that have been made in the last decade.
Mattson Tomlin wrote the superhero story and it was not taken from a comic.
Netflix has certainly dabbled in comics, and we’d love to see Project Power receive the comic book treatment in the near future.
Filming was done in New Orleans and the surrounding areas, which is not surprising considering the story takes place in New Orleans.
Principal photography was held in October 2018, and continued until December 2018.
