Obtaining the rights to the upcoming gothic thriller was no cakewalk. Netflix bought the production out for as much as $ 55 million, beating others who watched the play right to the curb. Along with the lead role as the police officer trying to make the case wide open, Bale will also act as a producer alongside Cooper, John Lesher, and Tyler Thompson, who will be featured in Cross Creek Pictures. Cross Creek Pictures has recently found success in producing The lawsuit against Chicago 7. The film was originally scheduled to have a theatrical release, but was instead purchased by Netflix due to issues surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. The light blue eye will be the third time Bale and Cooper go together. The duo have also worked together on hits like Hostile and Out of the oven. Hop on as executive producers it will be Dylan weathered and Tracey Landon.

With such a full cast and an exciting and mysterious story, The light blue eye is bound to be a huge money maker for the streaming service. No release date for the upcoming film has been announced yet.
