“We backwards-engineered this story of revenge off of: What would it be like to take the fun, thrilling stakes of a Hitchcock movie and put it in high school?” director Jennifer Kaytin Robinson told ELLE in a July 2022 interview. According to the outlet, queen bee Drea (Camila Mendes) wants to get back at her boyfriend for leaking an explicit video of herself while transfer student Eleanor (Maya Hawke) was outed thanks to a rumor that she forcefully tried to hold a girl down and kiss her. After an unlikely meeting, they decide to join forces to deal with each other’s “dirty laundry.”

Jennifer also told ELLE that “There are different points where everyone’s the villain and everyone’s the hero” in the film. “And that is so much of what growing up is. I wanted to make something that paints with all the colors of adolescence,” she told the outlet.

Who’s in the Do Revenge cast?

Buckle up, because Do Revenge is clad with an all-star cast from basically every teen/Gen Z show that’s taken us by storm. Of course, our leading ladies are Stranger Things‘ Maya Hawke and Riverdale‘s Camila Mendes.

“I will say, in Camila’s tape, I paused it at about maybe five seconds in, picked up the phone, and called Peter Cron and [producer] Anthony Bregman and said, ‘We have Drea.’ It’s Camila,” Jennifer told Elle. “I literally didn’t even finish. I watched her say, like, four lines and I was like, ‘And that’s it.'” And I started crying.” She was also immediately sold on Maya as Eleanor and even changed the movie’s location to Atlanta so there wouldn’t be scheduling conflicts with filming for Stranger Things 4, which was taking place around the same time.
