About Briana Middleton
Deadline notes that Middleton was announced as the female lead in the “Beauty and the Beast” prequel series. She shot her feature film debut in the forthcoming George Clooney-directed adaptation of “The Tender Bar,” based on the memoir by Pulitzer Prize-winning writer J.R. Moehringer. She’ll play the role of Sidney, a young woman who finds herself to be the “Daisy” to J.R.’s “Gatsby” (Tye Sheridan). Middleton recently completed shooting the lead in “The Last Will and Testament of Charles Abernathy.”
Based on a spec script from Brian Gatewood and Alessandro Tanaka (“The Sitter”), “Sharper” follows a con artist (Julianne Moore) in the world of Manhattan’s billionaire echelon. Sebastian Stan will play Max, a clever conman known for carrying out complicated plans and making away with large sums of money. In the film he’s pulled into another scheme.
Moore will also produce “Sharper,” alongwith Bart Freundlich, Gatewood, Tanaka and Erik Feig of Picturestart. A24 will serve as the studio, with Picturestart attached as the production company.
