Sydney Sweeney has just launched her own production company, Fifty-Fifty Films, and has already set up her first project!
The 22-year-old Euphoria star will take the lead in a new show, The Players Table, which she will also executive produce through her company.
“so excited to finally announce my company Fifty-Fifty Films and partner with @crazyrosefilms on my first project! more to come ;)” she wrote on Instagram.
The new series is a television adaptation of the forthcoming book “They Wish They Were Us” by Jessica Goodman, Deadline reports.
The book will be published on Tuesday (August 4) and follows high school senior Jill Newman (Sweeney) at her exclusive Long Island prep school as she works to uncover the truth about her best friend’s death and the role she and her fellow “players”—members of the secret society that rules the school—may have had in it.
“Starting Fifty-Fifty Films has been a goal of mine for a long time,” Sydney said in a statement. “When I read ‘They Wish They Were Us’ I was instantly drawn to the specificity of the world and the struggles of the characters — and I knew it was the first project I wanted to produce. I’m really honored that Jean-Marc Vallée and Nathan Ross wanted to partner on this series. I’m getting to learn from the best. We are really thrilled to be working alongside an empowering filmmaker like Annabelle [Attanasio].”
