Nyad: Start Date
The film biography is scheduled to be made available exclusively by streaming provider Netflix as early as fall 2023. In case of news regarding an exact date, we will inform you here.
At the age of 64, long-distance swimmer Diana wants to fulfill her dream of becoming the first person to cover the seemingly impossible distance of 177 kilometers between Cuba and Florida. This means she will be exposed to every conceivable risk during her 53-hour open-ocean swimming marathon without a shark cage. Together with her trainer and friend Bonnie, however, she intends to reach her goal.
The lead role of long-distance swimmer Diana is played by two-time Golden Globe Award winner Annette Bening (“The Kids Are All Right,” “Captain Marvel”). Oscar winner Jodie Foster (“The Silence of the Lambs,” “Flightplan – Without a Trace”) will be seen in the role of Diana’s coach and longtime friend Bonnie Stoll. Also in front of the camera will be Rhys Ifans (“Berlin Station”), Ethan Jones Romero, Luke Cosgrove, Jeena Yi and Eric T. Miller.
Currently there is no official trailer yet. Should one be released in the future, you will find it here.
The film is based on Diana Nyad’s own book, “Find A Way.” Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin serve as executive directors. Ann Biderman and Julia Cox are responsible for the screenplay. The movie is produced by Andrew Lazar and Teddy Schwarzman, among others.
