"The Edge of Seventeen" star Hailee Steinfeld will produce and star in Netflix movie "Idol." She'll play an assistant to a famous pop star who tries to steal the spotlight  in what sounds like an updated version of the classic "All About Eve." Or "The Talented Mr. Ripley."

Watch out for those assistants and understudies, people!

Steinfeld broke out in 2010’s "True Grit," for which she was nominated for a Best Supporting Actress Oscar. She was also a Barden Bella in the "Pitch Perfect" movies. And she sings in real life: In 2015, she released her debut album, "Haiz" on Republic Records.

Her next movies are "Bumblebee" and "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse."
