Greta Gerwig revealed on A24’s movie podcast that she wants to make three more movies set in Sacramento.

According to Vulture, she told Moonlight director Barry Jenkins:

“I’d like to make a total of four films that take place [in Sacramento]. I would like to do a quartet of Sacramento films. It’s inspired by the Elena Ferrante Neapolitan quartet — she wrote these four books that took place mainly in Naples. They’re so great. I thought, ‘Oh I’d like to do that.'”

Greta furthermore continued to say that she feels there’s more to explore in Sacramento:

“Because [Lady Bird] was one part of Sacramento. There’s a lot of different parts of Sacramento that I’d like to explore, too. I feel like I have the privilege of being from a place. I’m really from that place — my family didn’t move, my family’s still there, my friend’s are still there — I feel like I can actually speak to it with some feeling.”

So it sounds like she’s hoping to give love to the entirety of the Sacramento area in films to come. Maybe characters from other movies will meet one another in her Sac-set cinematic universe like in Marvel films!
