Millie Bobby Brown is already making big moves on the creative side.
The Stranger Things and Godzilla: King of the Monsters star has made a deal with Netflix to develop a movie titled A Time Lost, based on an original story Millie crafted with her sister, Paige Brown. Millie will be producing the film, while Paige will exec produce with father Robert Brown. It’s certainly a family project.
Writing the screenplay is Anna Klassen, an up and comer who is also attached to write Netflix’s Dorothy and Alice, a fantasy movie that finds the two Wizard of Oz and Alice in Wonderland characters sent to a home for “troubled” youths.
A Time Lost will tell of a long-standing feud between two Long Island families that comes to a head when one of their teenage daughters is diagnosed with cancer. No word as yet on who will be starring, although there is a good possibility that Millie will have a role.
“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. “It’s about friendship, family and overcoming obstacles when it feels like the world is pushing you down. It’s been a labor of love, literally.”
Said Lisa Nishimura, VP Independent Film and Documentary Features: “Millie is an extraordinary creative talent. We’ve been lucky to have her 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.”
Millie Bobby Brown is currently filming Enola Holmes, which has her playing the titular child sister of Sherlock (to be played by Henry Cavill) and Mycroft Holmes, investigating the disappearance of her mother. Both Millie and Paige are producers on that one.
