Here is everything we know about the Millie Bobby Brown movie The Thing About Jellyfish, which Netflix has recently picked up.
Millie Bobby Brown is looking to expand her cinematography by playing in different works. Earning great fame with her great performance in Stranger Things, Brown has many fans all around the world. Therefore, producers want to have Brown in their works both for her fame and talent. She reportedly had talks with Marvel and DC which she didn’t feel right about.
She has been working on a new movie called The Thing About Jellyfish. The movie has been in development since 2015 in Universal. Netflix picked up that film which is now going to be released as their original work. There is not much information about The Thing About Jellyfish starring Millie Bobby Brown yet. However, here is everything that we know about that movie.
What is the story of The Thing About Jellyfish?
The movie is based on a novel of the same name. A critically acclaimed 2015 children’s novel by Ali Benjamin, the book is about the story of Suzy Swanson. She is a seventh-grade girl who tries to figure out how her close friend Franny Jackson actually dies. Suzy and Franny kind of fall out after Franny decides to hang out with a more popular group. Suzy is an introverted person though, and this leads the duo not to talk to each other as much as they did before. After two years of falling out, Franny dies because of a ‘jellyfish sting’. Suzy keeps to herself after that and she comes up with many theories as to how it could happen.
