Netflix is developing “A Time Lost” based on an original story by sisters Millie Bobby Brown and Paige Brown. The “Stranger Things” star is serving as a producer on the project through PCMA Productions, and Anna Klassen is attached to adapt the original story created by the duo.
Paige Brown and Robert Brown are serving as executive producers on “A Time Lost,” and the official logline reads, “A long-standing feud between two Long Island families comes to a head when one of their teenage daughters is diagnosed with cancer.”
In the announcement, Millie Bobby Brown and Paige Brown said in a statement, “We are so grateful to Netflix for their confidence in us and this beautiful story, which we have spent years writing and developing. It’s about friendship, family and overcoming obstacles when it feels like the world is pushing you down. It’s been a labor of love, literally.”
Lisa Nishimura, VP Independent Film and Documentary Features, added, “Millie is an extraordinary creative talent. We’ve been lucky to have her in our family from the beginning of her career. It is a genuine thrill to witness Millie bring her distinct vision to the screen, now as a writer and producer, alongside her sister on this wonderful film.”
Brown is represented by WME and attorney Steve Warren. Klassen is represented by WME, Writ Large and Myman Greenspan.
Last week Netflix announced a new multi-year overall deal with “Wonder Woman” director Patty Jenkins. The award-winning writer, director, and producer is teaming up with Netflix to produce a new exclusive series, but Netflix is keeping the details a secret for now. Jenkins’ next film, “Wonder Woman 1984,” is set for a June 2020 release. Jenkins is serving as director, producer, and co-writer on that project, and the movie features Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Pedro Pascal, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, and Kristen Wiig.
