Millie Bobby Brown has allegedly held secret talks with Disney executives for a multimillion-dollar deal for a role in Star Wars.
The 18-year-old ‘Stranger Things’ star, who has taken home a million dollars per episode for the fourth installment of the Netflix series, could land a $15 million deal for another sci-fi franchise.
Millie and her father and manager, Robert, are said to be already in close relationships with Star Wars director Kathleen Kennedy.
The Mirror reported that Millie’s appeal to younger audiences makes her market value of at least $15 million “an easy decision for Disney.”
A source told the publication: “Millie is on Disney’s radar for new ‘Star Wars’ projects. He has had contact with Kathleen, who is aware of his desire to appear in a movie or have a central role in one of the new television projects for Disney Plus.
Although the talks are still informal, sources say there is great mutual respect.
“Disney executives know it’s already an icon for audiences ages 10 to 30 and what that entails. It could easily take $15 million for a first film or series. And she doesn’t need to audition, it’s more of a matter of how she and the director relate. She has the necessary seriousness to be the protagonist of that universe.”
