Little Women-fame Hadley Robinson to star in Amy Poehler’s Moxie
Moxie follows a teenage girl from a small town who starts a feminist revolution at her high school
Utopia and Little Women-actor Hadley Robinson has been tapped to star in Amy Poehler’s next directorial effort, Moxie. Lauren Tsai is also on board to co-star in the Netflix movie.
Moxie follows a teenage girl (Robinson) from a small town who starts a feminist revolution at her high school. Tamara Chestna adapted the screenplay, which is based on the book by Jennifer Mathieu.
Poehler will produce this film through her Paper Kite banner, along with Morgan Sackett and Kim Lessing. Moxie marks Poehler’s second time behind the camera, following her feature directorial debut with the Netflix comedy, Wine Country. The actor-director also starred in that movie alongside Maya Rudolph, Rachel Dratch, Ana Gasteyer, Paula Pell, Emily Spivey, Tina Fey, Maya Erskine, Jason Schwartzman, and Cherry Jones.
Robinson recently wrapped shooting the pilot for the upcoming HBO Lakers series, Showtime. Later this year, she can be seen alongside Saoirse Ronan and Emma Watson in Greta Gerwig’s highly anticipated Little Women.
