Deadline reports that a thriller drama based on Tess Sharpe’s novel, to which Warner Bros. has recently bought the rights, is in production. The story follows sixteen-year-old Harley McKenna who must fight against the rival drug gang that killed her mother, stand up to her father and care for the abused women in a shelter she has created, while her drug dealing, killer father prepares her daughter to take on the business. The film will be produced by Margot Robbie, and Dan Lin, and the script will be adapted by WestWorld writer, Carly Wray.
Though Robbie will not be starring in the film, I can think of a few actresses who could be phenomenal in the role. My personal picks would be Hailee Steinfeld, Chloë Grace Moretz, Kiernan Shipka or Yara Shahidi. Who do you think will be a great fit for the role?
