Trish Sie, the director behind “Pitch Perfect 3” and “Step Up All In,” is working on a new movie for Netflix called “The Sleepover.” The cast includes Sadie Stanley from the recent “Kim Possible” movie, Maxwell Simkins, Ken Marino, Cree Cicchino, Lucas Jaye, Karla Souza, Enuka Okuma, Erik Griffin, Joe Manganiello, and Malin Akerman.
Netflix’s official logline reads, “When two siblings discover their seemingly normal mom is a former thief in witness protection who has been forced to pull one last job, they team up to rescue her over the course of an action-packed night.”
Sie’s “Pitch Perfect 3” was a hit with fans, opening in third place in 2017 behind “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” and Sony Pictures’ blockbuster “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.” The threequel still made over $19.9M on its opening weekend, and beat out Hugh Jackman’s “The Greatest Showman.” “Pitch Perfect 3” went on to make over $185.4M worldwide and featured Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Brittany Snow, Hailee Steinfeld, Elizabeth Banks, John Michael Higgins, and John Lithgow.
The movie is part of Netflix’s growing slate of live-action family films. The other projects include the comedy “Tall Girl,” directed by Nzingha Stewart, and “Feel the Beat,” by director Elissa Down and starring Sofia Carson. Viewers can also count on Jay Karas’ “The Main Event,” produced in partnership with WWE Studios, and “A Babysitter’s Guide to Monster Hunting,” directed by Rachel Talalay.
Sarah Rothschild is writing the script for “The Sleepover,” and Mickey Liddell and Pete Shilaimon are serving as producers. The executive producers are Michael Glassman, Nicole Stojkovich, Scott Holroyd, and Alison Semenza King. Netflix didn’t set a date for “The Sleepover” at this time, but more information should be released when the movie goes into production. At that time we will most likely get a few trailers and teasers from the film.
