‘Do Revenge’ Teaser: Maya Hawke And Camila Mendes Get Payback On Bullies In Netflix’s Dark Comedy

The more things change, the more they stay the same. High school is no different. The clothes, the lingo, it might evolve but when teenagers get screwed, they still have fantasies about getting payback. Just as in the 1989 classic Heathers, the teens at the heart of the new comedy Do Revenge go to violent to get vengeance on those who have made their lives miserable.

Starring Stranger Things‘ Maya Hawke and Riverdale‘s Camila Mendes, Do Revenge centers on popular girl Drea, who joins with transfer student Eleanor to get some much-needed payback against their enemies when a sex tape of her is leaked.

Robinson has already had a big year as co-writer on Thor: Love & Thunder alongside Taika Waititi. She also directed the Netflix rom-com Someone Great, and created the Netflix series Sweet/Vicious. She co-wrote the Do Revenge screenplay with Celeste Ballard, drawing inspiration from Alfred Hitchcock’s Strangers On a Train.

Also starring Austin Abrams, Talia Ryder, Eliza Bennett, Rish Shah, Alisha Boe, and Sophie Turner, Do Revenge hits Netflix on September 16th.
