Pain Hustlers Trailer

Starring Chris Evans and Emily Blunt, Pain Hustlers tells the story of high-school dropout Liza Drake (Blunt), who finds success at a pharmaceutical start-up that becomes embroiled in a criminal conspiracy. The Netflix movie was inspired by Evan Hughes' 2018 article The Pain Hustlers, which appeared in The New York Times Magazine. He later expanded his expose into a book titled The Hard Sell: Crime and Punishment at an Opiod Startup, published in 2022. Zanna Therapeutics, the company at the center of the movie, is based on a real startup, though its name was changed for the movie. Related Article: Pain Hustlers: History vs. Hollywood
