Famed female director Greta Gerwig is opening up about her latest passion project, directing two Narnia movies for Netflix. 

"C.S. Lewis' Narnia books have been something I've loved since I was a child," says Gerwig in an interview with TIME magazine. "I had that instant excitement but instant terror that comes from trying to tackle something that has shaped me."

While Gerwig's recent projects, Barbie and Little Women, aren't steeped in faith, the chairman of Netflix film's, Scott Stuber shared that Gerwig grew up in a Christian home.  

"The C.S. Lewis books are very much based in Christianity," says Stuber in an interview. "And so we just started talking about it. And like I said earlier, we don’t have IP, so when we had the opportunity [to license] those books or the [Roald Dahl Co.] we jumped at it, to have stories that people recognize and the ability to tell those stories. So, it was just a great opportunity, and I’m so thrilled that she’s working on it with us. And I’m just thrilled to be in business with her. And she’s just an incredible talent."

Gerwig, named one of the Women of the Year by TIME Magazine, says she's thrilled and intimidated to step into trying to recreate such an 'enchanting' world on the big screen. 

"I’m slightly in the place of terror because I really do have such reverence for Narnia," Gerwig shared with BBC Radio 4’s Today. "As an adult, C.S. Lewis is a thinker and a writer. I’m intimidated by doing this. It’s something that feels like a worthy thing to be intimidated by."

A release date for the project has not yet been announced.
