greta gerwig cheered writers among wga strike during barbie Premieres at the Shrine Auditorium in LA. Prior to the screening, the film̵7;s director also noted that his co-writer Noah Baumbach was not present to support the guild.
“My co-writer and co-producer, my partner in love and art, Noah Baumbach is not here. Gerwig said he enthusiastically supports the Writers Guild of America’s fight. “From the first line to the last cut, this film is as much his as it is anyone else’s. She is a barbie girl. nothing inside barbie happened without them, and nothing happens in Hollywood without writers.”
It was the script that attracted Margot Robbie to the film and was something she did not expect to be approved by the studio.
“When I first read the script for Barbie, my reaction was, ‘Ahh! This is so good. What a shame it will never see the light of day,” she told BAFTA earlier this year. “Because they would never let us make this movie.”
At the premiere, Robbie gave a shout-out to Gerwig, saying that he didn’t think “most of us would have been involved if someone like Greta wasn’t at the top, especially Greta.” What she does with her movies… She’s so smart, but she can really deliver humor and emotion and we knew we wanted it all together. barbie movie. I can’t imagine anyone other than Greta doing it.”
