Actor named to play Rickson Gracie on Netflix

Jiu-Jitsu black belt and 39 year old actor Actor Caua Reymond is set to play the role of Rickson Gracie in a new Netflix project titled "Dead or Alive".  The release date is scheduled for the last half of 2021 and will be  released in English, Portuguese and Japanese. 

Reymond has been training Jiu-Jitsu for almost 25 years, and a big fan of Rickson. He earned his BJJ black belt from Alexandre Paiva back in 2002. Reymond has appeared in numerous popular films and soap operas in Brazil. 


This story will be told by the Brazilian film maker José Padilha, known for the police thriller Elite Squad along with Netflix’s crime dramatization Narcos (which is set to launch season 2).

“Padilha is studying hard the whole history and, besides Rickson, he will bring a lot of Maeda Koma. He found out many similar points between Koma and Rickson. I´m really glad to see the history of the biggest hero of my generation being told to the world. I can’t wait to see this movie ready.” according to Jean Jacques Machado
