Steinfeld Reeves Plan Netflixs Idol Film

Hailee Steinfeld (“Pitch Perfect 2,” “The Edge of Seventeen”) will both star in and produce the music drama feature “Idol” for Netflix, while “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” director Matt Reeves is in talks to produce through his 6th & Idaho company.

Netflix has acquired rights to the Matt King script about a girl who becomes an assistant for a popular singer and then tries to become her.

Should all the deals close then Cheri Steinfeld, Adam Kassan and Rafi Crohn would also produce the film. Steinfeld can next be seen in December’s “Bumblebee” and as the voice of Gwen Stacy in “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.” Reeves is developing the sci-fi series “Recursion” for Netflix, and “The Batman” film at Warner Bros. Pictures.
