Matt Reeves has signed an exclusive first look feature film deal with Netflix.

The multi-year deal gives the streamer a first pass at any features that Reeves wants to produce and/or direct under his production company, 6th & Idaho.

Reeves' banner previously had a first look deal at Fox, where he spearheaded the reboot of the Planet of the Apes series.

6th & Idaho is in pre-production on vampire drama TV series The Passage for 20th Century Fox Television, and has a graphic novel feature adaption Mouse Guard set up at Fox.

Reeves just completed the final film in the Apes series, War for the Planet of the Apes, which came out this past July. Over three films, the franchise has grossed over $1.5 billion at the global box office. Next up is the standalone Batman movie at Warner Bros., which he is set to write and direct.

Reeves is repped  by CAA, 3 Arts and Jackoway Tyerman.

The Reeves first looks deal comes a few days after the news that Netflix is moving forward on a sequel to David Ayer's fantasy cop drama Bright, which was the streamer's first big foray into tentpole filmmaking.
