As if Millie Bobby Brown wasn't already an impressive 16-year-old [1], the actress is also a producer, too. The Stranger Things actress is set to star in and produce a new Netflix film [2], The Girls I've Been, as first reported by Deadline. Netflix has since confirmed the news of the movie, which is an adaptation of the upcoming young adult novel with the same name by Tess Sharpe.

While we have yet to hear many details about its release, we do know The Girls I've Been is a suspense-filled thriller centered around a con artist, played by Brown, who "use[s] her powers of persuasion & impersonation to free herself, her girlfriend & ex-boyfriend from a bank hostage situation," according to a tweet from @NetflixFilm. Jason Bateman is also producing the film alongside Brown. The book isn't set to release until January 2021 [3], so we'll probably have to sit tight for additional information.
