    Moonlight’s Oscar winner writer, Tarell Alvin McCraney, has written a new film premiering on Netfilx Friday, February 8. High Flying Bird stars Andre Holland (also from Moonlight) and is shot on entirely on iPhone.



    High Flying Bird is directed by Steven Soderbergh who also shot her previous film Unsane entirely with an iPhone 7 Plus. Also note Soderbergh’s series The Knick which airs on Cinemax stars Andre Holland as well.

    Netflix describes the film as:

    In the midst of a pro basketball lockout, sports agent Ray Burke (André Holland) finds himself caught in the face-off between the league and the players. His career is on the line, but Ray is playing for higher stakes. With only 72 hours to pull off a daring plan, he outmaneuvers all the power-players as he uncovers a loophole that could change the game forever. The outcome raises questions of who owns the game – and who ought to. Directed by Academy Award winner Steven Soderbergh (Traffic) from a script by Academy Award winner Tarell Alvin McCraney (Moonlight) HIGH FLYING BIRD features an acclaimed ensemble cast that includes Zazie Beetz, Melvin Gregg, Sonja Sohn, Zachary Quinto, Kyle MacLachlan and Bill Duke, plus appearances from NBA athletes Reggie Jackson, Karl-Anthony Towns and Donovan Mitchell.

    There's a good, long interview with Soderberg on Bill Simmons' podcast that popped on Monday (Jan. 28). Simmons' podcast is on theringer.com
