And now for some non-movie awards related news: Greta Gerwig will star in Rebecca Miller’s new feature film, “Maggie’s Plan,” a romantic comedy by Miller and based on a story by Karen Rinaldi.
Rachael Horovitz (“Moneyball,” “Grey Gardens”) will produce alongside Miller’s producing partner, Damon Cardasis, through Miller’s production company, Round Films, and Horovitz’s Specialty Films.
The producers of “Maggie’s Plan” expect to complete casting this month, with plans to shoot this fall.
An award-winning filmmaker, writer/director, (and also wife to Academy Award winning actor Daniel Day-Lewis), Rebecca Miller’s feature film credits include: “Personal Velocity: Three Portraits” starring Kyra Sedgwick, Parker Posey and Fairuza Balk; “The Ballad of Jack and Rose” starring Camilla Belle and Daniel Day-Lewis; and “The Private Lives of Pippa Lee,” based on Miller’s novel and starring Robin Wright, Alan Arkin and Maria Bello. Miller’s second novel, “Jacob’s Folly,” debuted last year; the paperback is coming out this February.
Greta Gerwig, who also co-wrote “Frances Ha” with director Noah Baumbach, was recently seen in Woody Allen’s “To Rome With Love,” Whit Stillman’s “Damsels in Distress,” and her breakout role opposite Ben Stiller in Baumbach’s “Greenberg.”
This weekend, you can see Gerwig on television at the Golden Globes, where she’s up for best actress in a musical or comedy for “Frances Ha.” There’s no way to avoid the awards chatter this season.
