Monkey Man is partly-inspired by the Hindu myth about the deity Hanuman who is half man, half monkey, and will see Dev Patel play a man who comes out of prison into a world of corporate greed, and take revenge on everyone who wronged him before.

Dev Patel himself wrote the script with Paul Angunawela and his Hotel Mumbai collaborator John Collee, and Netflix is set to release the film in 2022.

The actor, who was most recently seen in The Personal History of David Copperfield, also has The Green Knight set for release next.
