Girl (AKA Lena Dunham) Wants to Make “Catherine, Called Birdy” Movie

Lena Dunham discussed a wide array of topics with writer and author Ariel Levy during the 15th annual New Yorker Festival on Friday night, including her aspirations to turn Karen Cushman’s “Catherine, Called Birdy” into a feature film….”It’s a really interesting examination of sort of like coming of age and what’s expected of teenage girls,” Dunham said. “I’m going to adapt it and hopefully direct it, I just need to find someone who wants to fund a PG-13 medieval movie.”

  1. Lena Dunham adapting and directing Catherine Called Birdy sounds FANTASTIC.

    But I suspect “finding someone who wants to fund a PG-13 medieval movie” will be a deal-killer. (Even for Lena Dunham.)
