According to the brief, the movie will be directed by the creator and director of Netflix's "The End Of The F***ing World" and "I Am Not Okay With This", Jonathan Entwhistle, and produced by Karen Rosenfelt, who worked on the "Twilight" and "Percy Jackson" franchises.

The casting director, PoPing AuYeung, is said to have casted for the live action "Avatar: The Last Airbender", "Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings" and "The Meg".

"A smart, scrappy and skilled fighter."
