The movie “The Caretaker” will star and be made by Sydney Sweeney. The actress from “Euphoria” is in talks to be in the movie version of Marcus Kliewer’s short story of the same name that will be made by Universal Pictures.
Sydney and her business partner, Jonathan Davino, are putting the project together through their company, Fifty-Fifty Films.
Through their company, Platinum Dunes, Michael Bay, and Brad Fuller are also making movies. The script is being changed by Karl Gajdusek.
The story of “The Caretaker” is about a young woman who finds a caretaking job on Craigslist. She soon finds out that her responsibilities are much bigger and more dangerous than she thought.
After Kliewer put the short story on Reddit, it got the attention of major movie studios. Last year, his short story “We Used to Live Here” was sold to Netflix in a big deal, and “The Caretaker” made movie studios bid against each other, especially since Sydney was set to star.
A new “Barbarella” movie will also star the 25-year-old actress. The new Sony Pictures project is based on a French comic book series by Jean-Claude Forest. The series was already made into a movie in 1968, with Jane Fonda in the lead role.
The movie is still in the works, and it doesn’t have a writer or director yet, but Sydney is likely to be an executive producer.
Roger Vadim directed the 1968 movie, which was about an astronaut from the year 4100 who tries to stop the evil scientist Durand Durand.
The first movie wasn’t a big hit at the box office, but it has become a cult classic, and the Forest estate has said that they want to make a new movie in 2020.
