Stranger Things favourite Millie Bobby Brown is sticking with Netflix for a new LGBTQ+ movie based on Tess Sharpe’s upcoming novel The Girls I’ve Been.
According to Deadline, the 16-year-old will not only feature on screen but also produce through her PCMA Productions banner, in collaboration with Ozark star Jason Bateman’s Aggregate Films.
As for what viewers can expect from the movie adaptation, the book’s official synopsis 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 mum 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.”
Nola’s first problem? Her ex-boyfriend walks in on her with her girlfriend, Iris. And her second is they all need to meet together the following morning to deposit some fundraiser money at the bank.
Which is where her third problem arises: “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 in trouble. Nora’s something else entirely.”
Due to the pandemic, it’s unclear when The Girls I’ve Been will go into production, but Sharpe’s book is currently scheduled for release on January 26, 2021.
