Ginsberg Needs A New Director

I haven’t had a chance to check out Marielle Heller’s acclaimed The Diary of a Teenage Girl yet, but based on the response to it I was really pleased that she was looking likely to director Natalie in the Ruth Bader Ginsberg biopic, On The Basis of Sex. Well, kiss goodbye to that according to Anne Thompson.

DGA first-time director nominee Marielle Heller (“The Diary of a Teenage Girl”) has been taking meetings all over town—par for the course—but parted ways with Natalie Portman’s Ruth Bader Ginsberg project and is looking to direct one of her own scripts.

Natalie seems really focused on working with female directors but with Patty Jenkins on Thor 2, Lynne Ramsay on Jane Got A Gun and now this, it just isn’t working out so far.
