The Dark Days of Magna Carta is designed to include three trilogies hoping that the first movie is successful. Paisley initially thought of the idea last year, although Paisley came to organise his ideas at the onset of the pandemic. He further clarified the movie will not be released during the pandemic.

The Magna Carta is just one of Lively’s thriller movies. The actress recently starred in The Rhythm Section. The movie was produced by Paramount and was reported to be a disappointment.

Aside from her acting career, Lively works as a producer for 21 Laps on Museum trilogy, Arrival, Kin, The Spectacular Now. Furthermore, her upcoming project is a sci-fi comedy entitled, Free Guy. Lively’s husband, Reynolds will be the main cast.

Although Netflix confirmed to develop the movie, nothing has been disclosed yet. However, judging on the last movie release of Netflix, Extraction, The Dark Days of Magna Carta will not disappoint.
