Netflix is extending its relationship with one of the stars of Stranger Things. Stranger Things and Enola Holmes star Millie Bobby Brown has been cast in the upcoming feature film The Girls I’ve Been, an adaptation of the upcoming novel by Tess Sharpe. The news, first reported by Deadline also reported Ozark star Jason Bateman will produce the film through his Aggregate Films.
The full synopsis for the upcoming novel reads:
“Nora O’Malley’s been a lot of girls. As the daughter of a con-artist who targets criminal men, she grew up her mother’s protege. But when mom fell for the mark instead of conning him, Nora pulled the ultimate con: escape. For five years she’s been playing at normal. But she needs to dust off the skills she ditched because she has three problems.”
“#1: her ex walked in on her with her girlfriend. Even though they’ve all been inseparable for months, Wes didn’t know about her and Iris. #2: The morning after, they all have to meet to deposit the fundraiser money they raised together. It’s a nightmare that goes from awkward to deadly. Because #3: right after they get in the bank, two guys start robbing it. But they have no idea who they’re really holding hostage. The robbers are trouble. Nora’s something else entirely.”
No word if the film will be on the 2021 docket.
