A documentary about teenage activist Greta Thunberg is in the works at Hulu, per Deadline.
The Swedish teen, who was recently awarded the accolade of Time’s Person of the Year for 2020 (the youngest person to ever receive it), rose to fame in 2018, when the then-15-year-old skipped school to raise awareness for climate change. Her school strike has since inspired thousands of students globally to do the same and catalyzed the hashtag #FridaysforFuture.
The documentary is slated to have a 2020 release and currently holds the working title Greta. It will be produced by Cecilia Nessen and Frederik Heinig via B-Reel Films, and directed by Nathan Grossman.
The documentary “follows Thunberg from the school strike in Stockholm all the way to parliaments and massive international protests, documenting her mission to make the world understand the urgency of the climate crisis. According to sources, Hulu had come on board the project awhile back and had been involved behind the scenes while deals were being made,” Deadline reports.
The sassy teen has stood up to politicians around the world and drawn badly needed attention to the global climate change crisis, and shows no signs of slowing down. Hulu should have plenty of material to work with.
