GameSpot - Barbie Director Greta Gerwig To Make Two Narnia Movies For Netflix - Report


Recommended Posts

Greta Gerwig has already secured a deal with Netflix to write and direct a minimum of two films based on C.S. Lewis's series, The Chronicles of Narnia, as reported by The New Yorker. It has been widely rumored for some time that Gerwig will be directing the new Narnia movies, following Netflix's acquisition of the Narnia movie rights back in 2018--The New Yorker's article likely finally confirms it.

The article also highlights Gerwig's creative approach, indicating that following Barbie, she is not inclined to embark on another project centered around toys. Gerwig expressed her preference for stories that deeply resonate with her, stating, "It would have to be something that has some strange hook in me, that feels like it goes to the marrow."
