Lili Reinhart has set her next feature film project with Netflix.
Reinhart will star in dual-timeline drama Plus/Minus with Wanuri Kahiu, who was behind the popular Kenyan romance Rafiki, set to direct.
Reinhart will star as Natalie, whose life, on the eve of her college graduation, diverges into two parallel realities: one in which she becomes pregnant and must navigate motherhood as a young adult in her Texas hometown, the other in which she moves to L.A. to pursue her career. In both journeys throughout her 20s, Natalie experiences life-changing love, devastating heartbreak, and rediscovers herself.
April Prosser is behind the screenplay. Screen Arcade’s Bryan Unkeless and Eric Newman will produce, having recently released sci-fi feature Project Power with the streamer. CatchLight Studios’ Jessica Malanaphy will also produce, with Screen Arcade’s Alyssa Rodrigues and Reinhart executive producing.
Reinhart, repped by UTA, Anonymous Content and Peikoff Mahan, first broke out as Betty Cooper on popular CW series Riverdale. Her first major studio film was Hustlers, where she starred opposite Jennifer Lopez and Constance Wu, and followed that with a starring role in Amazon romance Chemical Hearts, which she also executive produced.
Prosser, repped by Kaplan Perrone and Ziffren Brittenham, is behind Black List scripts The One That Got Away and Plus One that are now both set up at Amazon, where she is currently writing The Art of French Kissing.
Kahiu is repped by CAA, the Gotham Group and Sloane Offer.
