Academy Award nominated director, writer, playwright, and actor GRETA GERWIG continues to make a mark on the entertainment industry as a powerful storyteller.
Up next is Gerwig’s sophomore directorial project, Little Women. The classic story features an all-star cast including Meryl Streep, Emma Watson, Saoirse Ronan, Timothee Chalamet, Florence Pugh and Eliza Scanlen. Sony Pictures is set to release the film on December 25, 2019.
In Spring 2020, Gerwig will appear on stage opposite Oscar Isaac in Sam Gold’s Off-Broadway production of Anton Checkhov’s Three Sisters at The New York Theatre Workshop. This will mark her second collaboration with Gold following The Village Bike, for which she received an Outer Critics Circle nomination for Outstanding Actress in a Play in 2014.
Gerwig is perhaps best known for Lady Bird, her debut film as a solo writer and director. In 2018, Gerwig made history by being the fifth woman to be nominated for an Academy Award in the Best Director category, and the first to be nominated for a debut film. The film also earned four additional Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay, and acting nominations for stars Saoirse Ronan and Laurie Metcalf. The film received the Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture (Musical or Comedy), and garnered various guild and critics circle nominations including NBR, WGA, DGA, and BAFTA.
Previously, Gerwig has collaborated with director Noah Baumbach on several films, including Greenberg, Mistress America, and Frances Ha, for which she earned a Golden Globe nomination. Her additional acting credits include Jackie, Maggie’s Plan, 20th Century Women, Lola Versus, Damsels In Distress, Arthur, No Strings Attached, and most recently, the voice of Tracy Walker in Wes Anderson’s Isle Of Dogs.
