Robinson co-wrote the film’s script with Celeste Ballard, which follows Drea (an Alpha it girl, played by Mendes) and Eleanor (a beta, alt girl, played by Hawke), who, “after a clandestine meet-cute” team up to go after each other’s bullies. The movie is described as a “Hitchcockian dark comedy featuring the scariest protagonists of them all: teenage girls.”
Robinson also produces the film with Anthony Bregman and Peter Cron, for Lucky Story, under their overall deal with Netflix. The movie also marks a reunion between the filmmaker and streamer after their hit comedy (and Robinson’s feature directorial debut) “Someone Great,” starring Gina Rodriguez, DeWanda Wise and Brittany Snow.
Abrams is repped by WME, Industry Entertainment and Myman Greenspan Fox Rosenberg Mobasser Younger & Light. Reficco is represented by CAA and Hansen, Jacobson, Teller, Hoberman, Newman, Warren, Richman, Rush, Kaller, & Gellman L.L.P. Berelc is repped by UTA, Ivy Cavic at Rare Global and Brecheen, Feldman, Brieimer, Silver & Thompson.
