It's about the youngest son of a legendary killer who returns home for his father's funeral. There he gets "in the crosshairs of his four highly qualified, highly dangerous siblings". The shooting is scheduled to begin in 2023, the cast is currently being sought, it is said.
Capturing the opportunity on Instagram, Spielberg said, "This is a dream come true and an honor." She thanked the production company for their trust, which, according to "Deadline", had become aware of her through a short film made by Spielberg. In addition, she was highly motivated: "Let's make a tough film!"
