Greta Gerwig “Terrified” of Directing a Narnia Movie
I haven’t even really started wrapping my arms around it. But I’m properly scared of it, which feels like a good place to start. I think when I’m scared, it’s always a good sign. Maybe when I stop being scared, it’ll be like, ‘Okay. Maybe I shouldn’t do that one.’ But yeah I’m terrified of it. It’s extraordinary and it’s exciting. I hope to make all different kinds of movies in the course of the time I get to make movies, which – it’s a long time, but it’s also limited. I want to do big things and small things and everywhere in between, and having another big canvas is exciting and also daunting.”
When the interviewer suggested Gerwig could do a James Bond film, she sounded overwhelmed and replied:
We’re just going to stick with some lions, some dolls* for now.
* Gerwig’s next movie, Barbie, opens this weekend.
