She would star opposite Jeremy Renner as his apprentice. The released concept art from D23 even used her likness for the role.

The actress never would talk about the role this year and it was assumed that the role fell through due to her Apple+ series Dickinson being picked up for another season. As well as her music career put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
