Following her award-winning role in Stranger Things and lead part in upcoming movie Enola Holmes, it's just been announced that Millie Bobby Brown will also be starring in ~and producing~ another major Netflix project.
The streaming giant is adapting Tess Sharpe's upcoming novel The Girls I’ve Been, which is due out in January 2021. Millie will be playing the role of Nora O’Malley, who is the bisexual daughter of a con artist.
"Millie Bobby Brown will star in & produce THE GIRLS I'VE BEEN," Netflix tweeted today. "A new Netflix film adapted from Tess Sharpe's novel, the thriller follows a con artist who must use her powers of persuasion & impersonation to free herself, her girlfriend & ex-boyfriend from a bank hostage situation."

The book's synopsis reads:
"Nora O’Malley is a lot of things. A sister. An ex. A secret girlfriend. Kind of crooked, but reformed… somewhat. Nora O’Malley’s been a lot of girls. As the daughter of a con-artist who targets criminal men, she grew up her mother’s protégée. But when mum fell for the mark instead of conning him, Nora pulled the ultimate con: escape. For five years she’s been playing at normal. But she needs to dust off the skills she ditched because she has three problems.
"One: her ex walked in on her with her girlfriend. Even though they’ve all been inseparable for months, Wes didn’t know about her and Iris. Two: The morning after, they all have to meet to deposit the fundraiser money they raised together. It’s a nightmare that goes from awkward to deadly. Because three: right after they get in the bank, two guys start robbing it. But they have no idea who they’re really holding hostage. The robbers are trouble. Nora’s something else entirely."
Netflix didn't mention a release date, but hopefully it starts production soon as the early reviews of the book say it's brilliant.
