Greta Gerwig Starring in Whit Stillman’s Next Movie

So it looks like director Whit Stillman's long-awaited fourth movie will soon be upon us! It's been twelve years since the release of his Last Days of Disco, but Greenberg's Greta Gerwig — who seems like a great match for Stillman — tells WWD she starts shooting his Damsels in Distress in two weeks. "I play a girl named Violet who runs a suicide-prevention center at a liberal arts college," she says, echoing an earlier synopsis of the plot. "She prevents suicides through the powers of '30s song-and-dance numbers. So it’s a very dark comedy.” Hooray! [WWD via Playlist]
