Millie Bobby Brown is producing a new Netflix movie with her sister because she’s a total boss
Eleven’s powers are shining through again. Aside from starring in Stranger Things, Millie Bobby Brown has already ventured into designing sneakers with Converse, launching a vegan beauty brand, and creating a Pandora jewelry line. Now, Brown is adding another major line to her already impressive resume: Netflix movie producer. As if she could be more of a total boss.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Netflix is partnering with 15-year-old Millie Bobby Brown and her older sister Paige Brown to develop a film based on an original story written by the two girls.
A Time Lost “centers on a long-standing feud between two Long Island families that comes to a head when one of their teenage daughters is diagnosed with cancer,” so it sounds like a real-tearjerker.
"We are so grateful to Netflix for their confidence in us and this beautiful story, which we have spent years writing and developing," the Brown sisters said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. "It's about friendship, family, and overcoming obstacles when it feels like the world is pushing you down."
Millie will produce, and it’s not her first producer role, either. The multi-hyphenate is also credited as a producer on Enola Holmes, in which she’ll play Sherlock’s younger sister. Screenwriter Anna Klassen is poised to adapt the screenplay.
Netflix showed love for the Stranger Things starlet in a statement, according to The Hollywood Reporter:
"We've been lucky to have [Brown] in our family from the beginning of her career. It is a genuine thrill to witness Millie bring her distinct vision to the screen, now as a writer and producer, alongside her sister on this wonderful film."
All other details about A Time Lost are on the DL right now—including whether Millie will play a role in the movie. But we’re excited about anything that keeps Brown on our TV (and iPad, and movie theater) screens, so we’re keeping our eyes out for this one.
