Maya Hawke will star alongside her father Ethan Hawke in Revolver, a romantic coming-of-age comedy. Andrew Stanton will direct the film. Previously he helped make several films from Pixar, including A Bug’s Life, Finding Nemo, its sequel Finding Dory, and WALL-E. Kate Trefry wrote the script. Here’s a synopsis of the plot, courtesy of Variety:

According to Deadline, Ethan Hawke will be playing Jane’s father. The two played father and daughter in The Good Lord Bird, the Showtime miniseries that Ethan Hawke created, wrote for, and starred in. They are among the ranks of acting family members and playing family members. Such as Martin and Charlie Sheen in Wall Street. Clint Eastwood and his daughter Allison in Tighrope. Or Henry Fonda and Jane Fonda in On Golden Pond.

Ross Jacobson and Jen Dana will produce the film through their label 3311 productions. CAA Media Finance and UTA Independent Film Group will handle domestic sales, while Endeavor Content will take care of international sales out of the American Film Market. The release date for Revolver is unknown.

Several members of production on Revolver have been involved with Stranger Things. Maya Hawke, of course, has been a starring cast member since season three, with her breakout role being as Robin Buckley. Stanton directed two episodes before Hawke’s time. Stranger Things 2 “Chapter 5: Dig Dug” and “Chapter Six: The Spy.” Trefry has been a writer and producer on the show for several years, starting with season two.

Hawke and Trefry also contributed to Netflix’s Fear Street trilogy, though for separate installments. Maya Hawke played Heather in Fear Street: Part One-1994, a character who served as a homage to Casey Becker (Drew Barrymore) from the first Scream film. Trefy was one of the writers of Fear Street: Part Three-1666, alongside Phil Graziadei and Leigh Janiak.

Revolver won’t be the only time that Maya Hawke will act alongside one of her parents. One of the upcoming films on the actress’ slate is The Kill Room, which stars her mother, Uma Thurman, and Samuel L. Jackson. Quentin Tarantino has also discussed the possibility of Hawke playing B.B., the Bride’s daughter in Kill Bill Vol. 3, but that seems unlikely to happen unless future events prove otherwise.

Maya Hawke’s most recent role has been Robin in Stranger Things 4. According to IMDb, besides The Kill Room, two films currently in post-production featuring her are Asteroid City and Do Revenge. Ethan Hawke was recently seen in Blumhouse’s The Black Phone. Some of his products, either completed or in post-production, are Tonight at Noon, Raymond & Ray, and Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery.
