Lift Star Teases How Netflix Film Differs From Money Heist

Úrsula Corberó is no stranger to heists. The Spanish actress is one of the stars of Lift, an upcoming action comedy film from Netflix about a heist on a plane. Before Lift, Corberó was best known for her role as Tokyo on the popular Netflix series Money Heist.

According to Corberó, the only similarity between the two projects is that both revolve around a heist. Aside from the robberies, Corberó explained in an interview how Lift and Money Heist differ in style, tone, and presentation.

“Even though it’s a heist, it’s very different from Money Heist. Money Heist has this dark vibe. This is more just to have fun and it’s for all audiences,” Corberó said to GamesRadar+. “When I read the script, I remember I could feel the fast pace and it’s a different character, it’s a different vibe, it’s a different mood. It’s a different genre . . . I took care of the very different look for her, and I was very happy with the result.”

What to Expect in Lift?

Kevin Hart headlines Lift as Cyrus Whitaker, a professional thief who attempts the impossible: stealing millions of gold from a moving plane. Lift’s ensemble includes Corberó, Vincent D’Onofrio, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Billy Magnussen, Jacob Batalon, Jean Reno, and Sam Worthington.

The official synopsis reads: “A professional thief and his expert crew attempt the ultimate heist: stealing $500 million in gold from a vault on a plane — 40,000 feet in the air.”

Lift is directed by F. Gary Gray from a screenplay by Daniel Kunka. Producers include Hart, Brian Smiley, Matt Reeves, Adam Kassan, Simon Kinberg, and Audrey Chon.

Lift streams to Netflix on January 12, 2024.
