Orson Welles was a famous film director and actor. He worked on dozens of movies, including classics like Citizen Kane and Touch of Evil.
But there's one film he never had the chance to complete, so Netflix is going to finish the job for him.
According to a website dedicated to the filmmaker, Welles began filming The Other Side of the Wind in August 1970. However, he wasn't able to complete the project before he died in 1985.
Now decades later, Netflix says it's acquired the rights and will finance the completion and restoration of Welles' last film.
Netflix will even work with Producer Frank Marshall, who was a production manager during the original shoot.
"Like so many others who grew up worshipping the the craft and vision of Orson Welles, this is a dream come true," Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos said. "The promise of being able to bring to the world this unfinished work of Welles ... is a point of pride for me and Netflix."
The Other Side of the Wind is a satire film about Hollywood. It focuses on the last days of a legendary film director who is struggling to make his last great comeback as a filmmaker.
The Guardian says there have been other efforts to complete the film, but producers were never able to raise enough money to do it.
There's currently no completion date set. The editors have to go through 1,083 old-school reels of footage, after all.
