Saoirse Ronan to star in Greta Gerwig's directorial debut Lady Bird

Greta Gerwig's been floating around independent films for some time now, although she made some serious waves when she co-wrote and starred in 2012's FRANCES HA. Last year she re-teamed with director Noah Baumbach to bring us MISTRESS AMERICA, although it looks as though as the bird is fina'lly leaving the nest, so to speak. Gerwig will make her directorial debut with LADY BIRD, of which she's also writing. It's unknown if she'll play a role in the film at this time, but she's already cast her leading lady; Saoirse Ronan. The story will follow a high school senior (Ronan), spending her last year at home in Sacramento.

While I can't claim to love everyone film Gerwig is in, I do usually love her characters. She proves to be very charismatic, and as far as her writing goes, she writes some really witty dialogue. MISTRESS AMERICA didn't win me over like FRANCES HA, but I'm totally on board for LADY BIRD and very excited to see the amazingly talented Saoirse Ronan spout her dialogue.

LADY BIRD will most likely shoot sometime this Spring/Summer.
