Ginsburg reveals that producing her biopic was delayed because Portman has been holding out for a female director.
Natalie Portman came to talk to me about [the film landing a female director], and we had a very good conversation. And one thing, interesting, that she insisted on, it held up the project for a while. She said, ‘I want the director to be a woman. There are not enough women in this industry. There are many talented out there.’ And now they do have a woman director.
Marielle Heller (Diary of a Teenage Girl) is in talks to direct the film.
