The original movie was well received by the viewers as well as the critics. In particular, the performance of Diggs got appraisal very much, and according to a fact, it also acted as an offset for some of the bumpier moments of the film. Throughout its straightforward look at the two low-class pals of Oakland, who was struggling to find their place in a sea of gentrification, Blindspotting offers a handful of such astonishing moments.
Ultimately, the star of the movie is Diggs, who is a Tony winner for Hamilton, the one who comes with a fully realized performance into his own as a genuine movie star.
It will be joining the growing slate of the original series of Starz, including the American Gods, Outlander, and the most recently premiered, Power Book II: Ghost. Starz has always been a home to genre-bending half-hour originals and indie movie adaptations. Inspired by the independent film of Steven Soderbergh, The Girlfriend Experience, a new instalment of the same name is also on the way. Also, The Continental, the John Wick spin-off series is on its way.
