Gerwig

Film Director

Not much has been heard from Gerwig since “Lady Bird,” her darkly comic, semi-autobiographical ode to her teen years in Sacramento, scored a pair of Golden Globe Awards and five Oscar nominations back in 2018. But Gerwig, previously best known for penning and starring in 2012’s “Frances Ha,” has been busy writing and directing a new big-screen version of Louisa May Alcott’s oft-adapted 19th-century classic “Little Women,” set for Christmas with a cast including Meryl Streep, Emma Watson and “Lady Bird” stars Saoirse Ronan and Timothée Chalamet. In July, it was announced that Gerwig and her longtime significant other, filmmaker Noah Baumbach (“The Meyerowitz Stories”), would co-write Warner Bros.’ live-action “Barbie” movie, in which Margot Robbie will produce and play the living doll.
