David Yates’ latest takes a look at the ethically dubious practices of pharmaceutical companies – here’s the trailer for Pain Hustlers.

Director David Yates is likely best known for his forays into the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, having helmed various instalments of the Potter and Fantastic Beasts series. His latest film, which is being released on Netflix next month, is a significant departure from those movies.

Emily Blunt stars as a working class single mum in Pain Hustlers. Desperate for money to keep her family afloat, she takes a job at a pharmaceutical company. She finds her finances in better shape, but soon begins to question her choices when she becomes involved in a racketeering scheme. Starring alongside her are Chris Evans as fellow sales rep Pete, with Andy Garcia playing Blunt’s boss.

Also starring in the film are Catherine O’Hara, Jay Duplass and Brian d’Arcy James. Yates directs from a screenplay by acclaimed writer Wells Tower. His short stories have been featured in various publications, including The New Yorker, Vice and Harper’s Magazine. Tower has written two screenplays previously, but both ended up not being produced. Pain Hustlers marks his first feature film, and he was inspired by Evan Hughes’ non-fiction book The Hard Sell. 

Pain Hustlers is released on Netflix on 27th October. Here’s the teaser trailer:
