Millie Bobby Brown vs. a dragon in Netflix's new Damsel movie
The Stranger Things star is now Damsel.
Where are Millie Bobby Brown's dragons?! In a new Netflix movie.
Coming off of her debut in Enola Holmes, which ditched theaters for Netflix in the age of the pandemic, the actress is heading into the fantasy space for a new movie on the platform.
Brown will star in and executive produce Damsel, which is to be directed Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 Weeks Later) and written by Dan Mazeau (Wrath of the Titans). The film Princess Elodie, who thinks she's marrying Prince Henry but is really being sacrificed to a dragon. If it's between her and the fire-breather, we wouldn't bet against Brown, who previously went up alongside Godzilla on the big screen.
This project continues the 16-year-old starlet's highly lucrative relationship with Netflix, which reported that an estimated 76 million user accounts watched Brown's performance in Enola Holmes within the first 28 days of being on the platform, as noted in a letter to the shareholders. (Of course, there are caveats to that reporting.) As for any future Enola Holmes sequels, Brown told EW, "I really am optimistic about the future. I'm so looking forward to [hopefully] getting back to work."
Season 4 of the Netflix's hit series Stranger Things also got back to filming recently after the pandemic paused production for a time.
