Millie Bobby Brown to star in Netflix fantasy film “Damsel” – deadline
Two-time Primetime Emmy nominee and SAG Ensemble winner Millie Bobby Brown teams up with Netflix on fantasy film Lady, after the success of his recent fall hit Enola Holmes with the streamer.
Brown will star and executive producer Lady, which must be led by 28 weeks later and Oscar-nominated Spanish filmmaker Juan Carlos Fresnadillo from a screenplay by Dan Mazeau (the $ 302 million feature Wrath of the Titans and the under development feature of Universal Cowboy Ninja viking). Joe Roth and Jeff Kirschenbaum will produce. Executive production alongside Brown (who is under his PCMA banner) are Mazeau, Zack Roth and Chris Castaldi.
In Lady, Brown will play Princess Elodie, who thinks of marrying Prince Henry, only to discover that she is sacrificed to a dragon.
Fresnadillo was Oscar nominated for the 1997 live-action short Esposados. In addition to 28 weeks later, he also directed the horror thriller Clive Owen Intruders.
Brown was twice Emmy nominated for Seconding Actress Drama Series for her work on Netflix Strange things. She won the 2017 SAG Ensemble Award for the series and was nominated for two other SAG ensembles as well as two SAG female actor drama series.
Last September she starred in Enola Holmes which in its first week, according to Nielsen figures, saw Netflix users watch nearly 1.17 billion minutes of the movie. That translated to roughly 9.63 million plays for the 121-minute film and was the largest one-week viewing for an original streaming film since Nielsen started monitoring weekly streaming numbers. Brown stars in next Warner Bros / Legendary theatrical release in 2021 Godzilla vs. Kong, a sequel to last year Godzilla: King of the Monsters which made over 386 million WW dollars.
Brown is replaced by WME, PCMA Management and Productions and attorney Steve Warren. Fresnadillo is represented by CAA, LBI and lawyer Warren Dern. Mazeau is represented by Circle of Confusion and Katz Golden Rosenman.
