Aaron Sorkin’s ‘The Trial of the Chicago 7’ Launches Netflix Oscars 2021 Rollout

Aaron Sorkin’s ‘The Trial of the Chicago 7’ Launches Netflix Oscars 2021 Rollout
Netflix skipped the fall festivals, but the streamer will launch its robust award season lineup with Aaron Sorkin’s “The Trial of the Chicago 7,” which hits select theaters September 25, three weeks before its October 16 streaming date. The Oscar-winning screenwriter (“The Social Network”) returns to the director’s chair with this long-in-the-works courtroom drama, initially developed by DreamWorks for Steven Spielberg to direct.

Sorkin delivers a powerful Oscar contender as a great cast runs with his brilliant dialogue that serves witty real-life characters and high-pitched drama. While Best Picture, Director, and Screenplay nods are in the bag, Netflix hasn’t yet decided how to play out the Oscar categories for this wide-ranging cast.

It’s likely the awards team will push the most established stars for Best Actor: Oscar-winner Eddie Redmayne (“The Theory of Everything”) as Tom Hayden and Original Screenplay Oscar nominee Sacha Baron Cohen (“Borat”) as Abbie Hoffman.
