Greta Gerwig on “Barbie”
Earlier this week, news broke that Greta Gerwig will write and direct “at least” two Narnia movies for Netflix.
Her upcoming film Barbie, is one of the year’s most anticipated releases. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Gerwig shared insights into her approach to the film, its distinctive visual style, and thematic influences.
Despite the magnitude and mainstream appeal of the Barbie movie, Gerwig believes that the film still maintains a personal quality akin to her previous works;
“I’ve never been part of anything like this,” she says. “But in a funny way, it feels like the fundamentals are the same. Even though it is Barbie and it is an internationally known brand, the movie feels very personal. It feels just as intimate as Ladybird or Little Women.”
‘Barbie’ is out in theatres on July 21st.
