New Pippi Longstocking film on its way

The Award office is thrilled over the news that Debra Granik is working on a treatment for a new Pippi Longstocking film.

In 2010, Debra Granik released critically acclaimed Winter’s bone, which features the strong female lead Ree Dolly, played by Jennifer Lawrence. With an absent father and depressed mother, Ree Dolly struggles to keep her family together.

 “People are finding these heroines charismatic, unexpected and fresh,” says Winter’s Bone director Debra Granik in an interview with the LA-times. “What a person in the business can get from that is, ‘Hey, a young female protagonist doesn’t need to have a boyfriend, get pregnant, cut herself or be naked to attract an audience.’ ”

On that note, Debra Granik revealed that she is currently working on a treatment for Pippi Longstocking – the world’s strongest girl – together with her producing partner Anne Rosellini.

We simply can’t wait to see the result!
