Steven Spielberg’s company Amblin Partners has teamed up with Netflix for multiple future film projects.

Amblin Partners, renowned director Steven Spielberg’s company, has teamed up with Netflix for future film projects, as announced by the streaming site this afternoon.

It’s a surprising move, with negative comments about Netflix films and their awards eligibility being attributed to Spielberg in the past, though these were later claimed as being mis-quoted or misinterpreted.

Spielberg is just the latest in a long line of high profile film makers and stars moving to the streaming platform for financing, Martin Scorcese, Noah Baumbach, David Fincher and Kevin Hart are just some of the names who have linked with the streaming company, be it through their work or the work of their production companies.

Amblin has an existing deal with Universal Pictures, which will remain in place alongside this new deal. Spielberg and the team at Amblin will choose and create projects for each distributor on a case by case basis, so don’t be expecting Jurassic World: Dominion on Netflix any time soon.

Spielberg’s next directorial project is his loosely autobiographical film starring Michelle Williams, Paul Dano and Seth Rogen. This will receive a theatrical release through Universal.
