Brianna Hildebrand Talks “Family” Dynamic Behind ‘Playing With Fire’

Playing with Fire centers on a crew of smoke jumpers (John Cena, John Leguizamo, Keegan-Michael Key) who rescue several kids (Finley Rose Slater, Christian Convery, Brianna Hildebrand) from a cabin fire, only to become de facto parental figures to the children. Andy Fickman (She’s The Man) directs the feature.

Thanks to her work as Negasonic Teenage Warhead in the Deadpool films and the Netflix series Trinkets, Hildebrand has seen her star steadily rise over the past several years (she’s also great in Tragedy Girls).

“My favorite thing about this movie is that it kind of tells you in a way that you can pick and choose who you want your family to be to some extent,” said Hildebrand. “And you can kind of make your family if you feel like you need that support. I hope that idea, the idea of family, resonates with people.”

Playing With Fire opens nationwide November 8.
