It was only a matter of time before Millie Bobby Brown became a household name. Now Netflix have to pay up if they want to continue to work with her… and they’re reportedly very happy to do so.
Millie Bobby Brown is arguably the biggest star in Netflix’s Stranger Things. Although she was a newcomer to the industry when she first starred in the hit horror series, it catapulted her to stardom.
Not only is the 17-year-old teenage actress taking the big and little screen by storm, she is also the face of VOGUE Eyewear and Florence by Mills.
She is also the lead in one of this year’s biggest epics, Adam Wingard’s Godzilla vs. Kong, which premieres here in Australia in March.2020 mystery film based on the first book in the young adult fiction series of the same nameShe is also the lead in one of this year’s biggest epics, Adam Wingard’s Godzilla vs. Kong, which premieres here in Australia in March.
Netflix are very happy to maintain a professional and close relationship with the actress and have renegotiated her multiyear contract which includes a significant pay raise as well as a sequel to their 2020 mystery film, Enola Holmes, based on the first book in the young adult fiction series of the same name.
Her contract also promises Millie Bobby Brown her own Stranger Things spinoff with the working title Eleven.
In December, 2020, our source disclosed to us that Netflix were interested in making an Eleven spinoff starring Millie Bobby Brown.
“Brown has signed on for her own Stranger Things spinoff as Eleven which will begin filming in 2021. It is unclear whether the deal is for a Netflix exclusive movie or a mini series, but pictures of Carrie are being passed around the studio as inspiration,” a source told Sausage Roll.
We originally believed that Stranger Things season 4 would conclude the series but according to Small Screen UK Millie Bobby Brown has asked for even more money for the season 5.
An industry insider, Daniel Richtman, alleges that Millie Bobby Brown has asked for more money for Stranger Things season 5 which — if true — would confirm that season 4 will not be the finale we all expected it to be.
Our source also verified the rumour and claimed it had everything to do with greenlighting her spinoff.
“I’m not aware of the precise details of Millie’s new contract but I’ve heard it the terms were renegotiated due to Elona Holmes 2 and the Stranger Things spinoff. Understandably she was wants more money as she’ll be doing a lot of work for Netflix in the coming years,” the source added.
Neither Netflix nor Millie Bobby Brown have confirmed the rumours so far so only time will tell if Daniel Richtman remains a reliable source when it comes to the Hollywood scoop.
