Millie Bobby Brown is out here proving there really is nothing she can’t do, as she’s set to battle it out against a dragon in the latest movie she’s signed up for.
Straight off the back of the success of Netflix’s Enola Holmes, the actress, 16, has reportedly signed on to make another movie with the streaming platform titled Damsel.
Deadline reports that the film will see Millie play the role of Princess Elodie, who is tricked into thinking she is marrying a prince, only to then find out that she is actually being sacrificed to a dragon instead. Brutal.
Oscar-nominated Spanish filmmaker Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, whose film credits include 28 Weeks Later and Intruders, is expected to direct Damsel, while Dan Mazeau (Wrath of the Titans) will write the screenplay.
As well as starring in its lead role, Millie, who is best known for playing Eleven in Stranger Things, is also listed as an executive producer.
Little else is known about the project, with the rest of the movie’s cast yet to be confirmed.
Her addition comes after Millie starred in Sherlock Holmes spin-off film Enola Holmes that went on to become a hit on Netflix, following its release in September.
It follows the story of Enola (played by Millie), who is Sherlock’s little sister, as she goes to London in search of her mother who has disappeared.
Millie stars in the movie alongside Henry Cavill (Sherlock), Sam Claflin (Mycroft Holmes) and Helena Bonham Carter (Eudoria Holmes).
Fans are already calling for a sequel and Millie was left emotional when Enola Holmes finally dropped on Netflix, as she told fans: ‘I’m getting so emotional, but I hope you all enjoy this film and the message behind it. I love you all so much and I’m so grateful I get to play characters like this. Love you Enola.’
As she gears up for yet another big screen project, Millie recently revealed that she almost quit acting after a failed Game Of Thrones audition.
Speaking on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Millie said: ‘I think I was very disheartened by the rejection – which is something that I tell everyone it’s like, this industry is just full of rejection 24/7.
‘I then auditioned for Game of Thrones and I got a no for that and it then that’s when I was like, “Oh this is really difficult.” And I guess I really wanted the role.’
