While discussing her adaptation of the Louisa May Alcott novel, Gerwig revealed that she is currently developing a musical film and though she is keeping the details on the project close to her chest, she did offer that tap dancing may be a key element in the film, saying that “I feel the world is really missing” it right now.

It has been ages since tap dancing was taken seriously in the film world, as it has been used more often for comedic purposes in recent years versus its more exhilarating fashion in the years of Fred Astaire (Holiday Inn), Ginger Rogers (Top Hat) and Gene Kelly (Singin’ in the Rain). Though not her first exploration of either genre, as the acclaimed black-and-white dramedy Frances Ha, which she co-wrote, featured plenty of dancing, while Damsels in Distress featured musical moments.

She is also currently working on co-writing the script for the live-action Barbie movie alongside creative partner and husband Noah Baumbach.
