Greta Gerwig is one of the most admired American actors. She first got the attention of film makers when she appeared in a plethora of mumblecore films for three years between 2006 to 2009.

The latest buzz is that she has officially signed a film titled ‘Barbie’. It will star Margot Robbie who’s known as the world famous Mattel doll.

It was actually in 2019 when Gerwig got an idea to sign the project as a writer.

She had planned this project with her partner Noah Baumback. That was the time when most of her fellow actors and film makers were predicting that she was keen to direct films.

It’s because of the success of her films “Lady Bird” and “Little Women“. The latest is that Gerwig will soon direct ‘Barbie’ which is going to be a comedy film produced by Robbie.

As per the inputs from Variety, the film will be produced through her famous banner named Lucky Chaps. As per the sources, the film will start production from the next year in London at their Leavesden Studios.

The first confirmation of the Warner Bros comedy ‘Barbie’ came from Robbie when she stated in an interview that Gerwig would be directing the film. The interview was held in 2021 for the famous Vogue UK cover.

“People generally hear ‘Barbie’ and think, ‘I know what that movie is going to be,’ and then they hear that Greta Gerwig is writing and directing it, and they’re like, ‘Oh, well, maybe I don’t…'”She had said at that time.

As per the sources, “Barbie” is set to release in 2023. Well, it’s the not the only project Gerwig is working on. She has yet another project titled “White Noise” which is Baumbach’s adaptation of Don DeLillo’s contemporary classic.

In the above project, Gerwig will star opposite Adam Driver. So far, the makers have not revealed anything more about the upcoming project.
