A bold new haircut. A best-selling book. Lena Dunham is on a headline-stealing roll and shows zero signs of stopping. The actress-slash-writer announced at the New York Film Festival that she’s adapting the young adult novel Catherine, Called Birdy into a film.
The book (a favorite from the 90s) is set in late-13th-century England and focuses on a twelve-year-old girl’s attempts to ditch suitors. The only catch in Lena’s plans? She seems to think the screenplay will be a tough sell to studios. “I just need to find someone who will fund a PG-13 medieval movie,” Lena said.
Wishing you luck, girl. If the movie gets made, this mega-fan will definitely be at the midnight showing.
