Saoirse Ronan to produce upcoming feminist series, Girls Can’t Shoot (& Other Lies)

Get a girl who can do it all.

Saoirse Ronan is moving up in her career, and with an extensive background in the business, it’s no surprise what her next endeavour is.

Spreading her wings and going in a different direction, Saoirse has been announced as the latest producer for a new feminist anthology series, Girls Can’t Shoot (& Other Lies).

Based on the international bestselling essay collection Feminists Don’t Wear Pink (and Other Lies), each episode is set to tell the story of a different woman in history.

According to Deadline, the first season will “explore and play with the expectations of women in storytelling by placing heroines at the centre of traditionally male genres in a multitude of original, high concept, cinematic tales.”

And considering what the show is about, it only makes sense to have a group of strong women at the helm, and Saoirse Ronan joining the team is exactly that.

The series is also full of some pretty cool women, with Beanie Feldstein, Jameela Jamil, Kat Dennings, Michaela Jaé Rodriguez and Lolly Adefope all set to get their own episodes.

Kat and Lolly are also set to write their own episodes, adapting them from their own essays in the collection while Beanie and Michaela will be co-starring and developing their episode together.

Each lead actor will also be working as an executive producer on their episode.

While nothing has been said about Saoirse starring in the series, she will executive produce the pilot episode as well as writing one of the essays in the book.

Saoirse isn’t the only Irish star involved in this project as Harry Potter actress Evanna Lynch has also written an essay for the book.

Emma Watson, Keira Knightley and Karen Gillan have also all been involved in writing essays but there’s still no word on any of them being in the series.

There is no details as of now of when this series will air, or where it will be available to watch, but you’ll know as soon as we do.
