You might know Brie Larson as an Academy Award-winning actress, but you have no idea of the filmmaking expertise she has.
It’s next to impossible for someone to not know or recognize the name and the face of Brie Larson. From the day Brie Larson has taken the responsibility of MCU as Captain Marvel, she has become a household name. In the past few years, Brie Larson has done some terrific job with her acting performance in several movies including ‘Captain Marvel‘, ‘Room’, ‘Kong: Skull Island’, ‘Just Mercy’, ‘Avengers: Endgame’, and so on. Brie Larson has even won an Academy Award, BAFTA Award, Golden Globe, and more for her acting performance in ‘Room’. However, while everyone is in awe of her acting, very few seem to know that Brie is also a director, writer, and producer.
Brie Larson as a director, producer, and writer
Brie Larson has a broader sense of film-making than just being an actor.
She might have not been recognized as either a director or writer yet, but she has tried her hands on directing, writing, and producing several times.
Her initial tries as a director and writer were two short films that released earlier in the decade. ‘The Arm’ (2012), and ‘Weighting’ (2013), both saw Brie Larson contributing as co-director and co-writer.
While both the short films didn’t do much to hype Brie Larson’s talents, it was in 2017 when Brie gathered some talks around her movie-making with a feature film.
‘Unicorn Store’ – Brie Larson’s feature film directorial debut
‘Unicorn Store’ was a 2017 American fantasy comedy-drama film. The movie starred Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Joan Cusack, Bradley Whitford, Karan Soni, and others. ‘Unicorn Store’ marked Brie Larson’s directorial debut in feature films, and the actress also acted as a co-producer in the movie.
The movie was later picked up by Netflix and was released as Netflix feature film on April 5, 2019. Thus, making Brie Larson the director of a Netflix movie.
As per some of the latest reports, Brie Larson is now taking a leap ahead in her directing career with Netflix.
“We Got This Covered” reports quoting some latest leaks from insider Daniel Richtman, who claims – Netflix has signed a deal with Brie “to star in and direct three original features”.
While there is no confirmation or further information on these leaks, if this turns out to be true, Brie Larson will become as much of a director as she is an actor in the near future.
