Amy Poehler To Direct Netflixx Moxie Film

Comedian Amy Poehler has set up her next directorial effort, an adaptation of the Jennifer Mathieu novel “Moxie” at Netflix and Paper Kite (“Russian Doll”).

Tamara Chestna pens the film about a sixteen-year-old girl from a small town who is inspired by her mother’s past as part of the underground punk movement Riot Grrrl, and uses it as the catalyst to start a feminist revolution at her high school.

Poehler, Morgan Sackett and Kim Lessing will produce and shooting begins in the Fall. Poehler makes her feature directing debut on “Wine Country” which hits Netflix in May.
