Following her successful multi-season run at Netflix’s popular Original show, Stranger Things, actress Millie Bobby Brown has been cast in the lead role for a new fantasy film titled Damsel.
The film will revolve around the titular damsel who is dutiful and benevolent and agrees to marry a handsome prince before stumbling upon the truth behind the deal. She is being sacrificed by the royal family to repay an ancient debt where she is being cast into a cave with a deathly dragon. Unable to help her situation, the damsel must rely on her brains and wits to find out ways to survive.
The story is nothing like the fairytales we usually read where a virginal princess is usually used as bait to break curses. However, it will be exciting to see how Brown manoeuvres her character through these adversities to survive till the very end.
Brown will be joined by Angela Bassett from Black Panther, Forrest Gump‘s Robin Wright, Ray Winstone from Ther Departed, Brooke Carter from The Peripheral, Shohreh Aghdashloo from The Expanse and Nick Robinson from Jurassic World.
Brown was seen in the film Enola Holmes which has a sequel scheduled for release this year. Alongside Henry Cavill, Sam Claflin and Helena Bonham Carter, Brown added incredible depth to her character as the titular Enola who is spunky, rebellious and extremely intelligent.
Brown is best known for her role as Eleven on the Duffer Brothers’ 80’s-love-letter-cum-sci-fi series, Stranger Things.
Alongside Finn Wolfhard, Noah Schnapp, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, David Harbour, Winona Ryder, Sadie Sink and others, Brown has carved out her own fan following as the loyal friend with psychokinetic powers who helps the other kids in the show find their friend and battle other adversaries.
She will soon be seen in the fourth season of Stranger Things which is scheduled to release the first volume on May 27th, 2022.
