Sept. 5 (UPI) -- Netflix is introducing the new film Pain Hustlers.
Pain Hustlers is based on the Evan Hughes book Pain Hustlers: Crime and Punishment at an Opioid Startup. Wells Tower wrote the script, with David Yates (Harry Potter, Fantastic Beasts) as director.
The film follows Liza Drake (Blunt), a blue-collar woman struggling to raise her daughter. The character "takes a job at a failing pharmaceutical start-up, only to get involved in a dangerous racketeering scheme," according to an official synopsis.
"I've always been fascinated by salespeople and what they do and the moral side of the pharma industry when they're hustling to make money," Yates told EW.
Pain Hustlers will have its world premiere Sept. 11 at the Toronto International Film Festival and open in select theaters Oct. 20. The movie starts streaming Oct. 27 on Netflix.
