The film will see Brown play Princess Elodie, who believes she is marrying Prince Henry but is actually being sacrificed to a dragon, according to Deadline. No additional cast members have been confirmed yet.

Damsel will mark Brown’s second film with Netflix following her first as an executive producer on Enola Holmes, in which she also played the titular character. The film focused on Sherlock Holmes’ teen sister on the hunt for their mother who had gone missing.

In a four-star review of Enola Holmes, NME said: “Pitched somewhere between Hermione Granger and Fleabag, Bobby Brown’s Netflix rebel is the perfect blend of precocious wit and action finesse.

“The Stranger Things star recently said she’d had trouble slipping into the correct British accent (despite spending her childhood in Dorset), but you wouldn’t know. Oozing Hollywood charm, Bobby Brown zips between scenes, taking enough time to drop smart-arsed quips to camera (hi there, Phoebe Waller-Bridge) before running, driving or flying off to the next high-stakes stunt.”
