Netflix and Matt Reeves in talks to make Idol with Hailee Steinfeld


Matt Reeves’ company 6th & Idaho is in advanced talks with Netflix to make the musical feature Idol, with Hailee Steinfeld attached to star and produce.

While the movie has not yet been given a green light by the streaming service, Deadline reports that a deal is imminent for Idol. Netflix beat Paramount and Universal in a bidding war for the film.

Idol, set in the pop music world, centers on a girl who takes a job as an assistant to a famous pop singer and then tries to morph into her. The story is described as a combination of The Devil Wears Prada and All About Eve. The movie was written by Matt King

As an accomplished actor and recording artist, Steinfeld is a fantastic choice to lead Idol. Federal Films, the motion picture division of her record label, Republic Records, will release the movie’s soundtrack. In addition to starring in and producing the movie, Steinfeld will play a big role in the music featured in the film.

Steinfeld’s mother, Cheri Steinfeld, will also act as a producer on the film. In addition, Reeves (War for the Planet of the Apes, Let Me In), Adam Kassan (End of Watch), and Rafi Crohn (The Passage) will be producing through 6th & Idaho.

Steinfeld was nominated for an Oscar for her first major film role in the Coen Brothers’ True Grit. Since then, both her acting and music careers have taken off.

She starred in the last two movies of the popular Pitch Perfect series and generated Oscar buzz for her lead role in The Edge of Seventeen. She’ll next be seen on-screen in the December movie Bumblebee and in the title role in Dickinson, an Apple TV series.

She’s also had several hit songs, including “Starving” and “Let Me Go.”

The world of Idol is one Steinfeld is intimately familiar with. As a result, her involvement in the film and its soundtrack will not only help guide the movie but will also likely be a big draw for fans of both her movies and her music.
