Famous American film director, producer, and screenwriter Steven Spielberg’s production Amblin Partners has signed up for several films to stream every year in media streaming giant Netflix. Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s chief content officer, has long been pursuing for the collaboration.

The partnership does not entirely involve any movies to be directed by the beloved filmmaker, but it could bring bigger-name pictures, depending entirely on the partnership’s parameters. Amblin Partners is described as creators and producers of films that use the Amblin Entertainment and DreamWorks Pictures banners. It also includes Amblin Television and partners Reliance Entertainment, Alibaba Pictures, Entertainment One (eOne), and Universal Pictures. Spielberg is set to release “West Side Story” in December with Disney’s 20th Century Studios. Amblin, conversely, has an independent deal with Universal Pictures for theatrical features. “At Amblin, storytelling will forever be at the center of everything we do, and from the minute Ted and I started discussing a partnership, it was abundantly clear that we had an amazing opportunity to tell new stories together and reach audiences in new ways,” Spielberg said.

Amblin Partners has helped produce various movies besides the filmmaker’s, such as “Green Book” and “1917.” Amblin and Netflix have also previously partnered on a series and in the movie “The Trial of the Chicago 7,” which Amblin co-produced and sold to Netflix during the COVID-19 pandemic. When asked about his 2019 issue about being against the streaming innovation, Spielberg pointed out that a great story is the most important and everyone should have access to great stories, whether on a small or big screen. Netflix’s Sarandos added: “Steven is a creative visionary and leader and, like so many others around the world, my growing up was shaped by his memorable characters and stories that have been enduring, inspiring and awakening.”
