Amidst all the happenings in the world right now, the most urgent issue is that of global warming and how nature preservation is extremely important. And over the last several months, if there has been one person who has been the central talking point of the same then that is the 16 year old activist, Greta Thunberg.
Her life has already become a thing of curiosity for many as to how the little girl went on to become the most popular person in the world these days. In an attempt to put that into celluloid, a documentary on the life of the teenage climate activist is currently said to be in works at Hulu.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film, which has the working title Greta, will follow the 16-year-old from Sweden from when she started a school strike for climate change awareness in 2018 through her rise on the international stage. Nathan Grossman is directing, and Cecilia Nessen and Fredrik Heinig produce via B-Reel Films. It's set to premiere sometime in 2020.
In August 2018, Thunberg, then 15, began her school strike with this question for adults: If you don't care about my future on earth, why should I care about my future in school? The strike soon mushroomed into a global movement and made Greta, a quiet girl on the autism spectrum, into a world-famous activist.
The filmmakers have been following Thunberg since the early days of the school strike through meetings with governments and her appearance at the United Nations in the fall. She was named Time magazine's Person of the Year last week, the youngest person to receive the title.
