Netflix has had quite the successful year as it was just announced that Ozark and Stranger Things have earned Emmy nominations for Best Drama series. Their latest project is a film adaptation of Tess Sharpe’s novel The Girl’s I’ve Been with Millie Bobby Brown to star and produce alongside Jason Bateman producing.

The novel, which will be published by Penguin Random House early next year, is a thriller that centers around a con artist, Nora, who uses her powers of persuasion and impersonation to free herself, her girlfriend, and ex-boyfriend from a hostage situation at a bank.

Brown has been working with Netflix on her next feature film Enola Holmes, which she plays Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes’ rebellious, but gifted teen sister, Enola. The film is set to debut on Netflix in September. Brown’s best known for her role as Eleven in Stranger Things, which has yet to return to production for the third season due to the coronavirus.

Bateman’s Ozark received an Emmy nomination for Best Drama Series and he received a nomination for Best Actor, which is his third since playing Marty Byrde in the series. Ozark has been renewed for a fourth and final season. In addition to Ozark, Bateman’s earned an Emmy nomination for his guest-starring role in HBO’s The Outsider.
