After years of hoping, Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret is finally being made into a movie! We are so excited for this movie to come out so here’s everything we know so far!

Everything We Know about the Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret Movie So Far

1. Writer and director, Kelly Fremon Craig, of The Edge of Seventeen is set to write and direct this film!

When the Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret movie was announced, Deadline also exclusively revealed that Kelly Fremon Craig was hired on to direct!


2. Lionsgate bought the rights to the film!

Back in March of 2020, which feels like eight years ago now, The Hollywood Reporter announced that Lionsgate won the rights to the film in a heated bidding war, officially green-lighting the film to start pre-production!


3. Filming has begun!!

Judy Blume tweeted a picture of her on set of the Margaret movie and we cannot express how excited we are!


4. She even signed books for the cast and crew!

This is too cute! Loved seeing this BTS pic.


5. Judy Blume is also a producer for the film!

In the original Deadline announcement, Judy Blume was listed as one of the producers for the film. We’re so happy she gets her own personalized producer’s chair when she’s on set.


6. Legendary costume designer, Ann Roth, is designing the costumes for the movie!

Ann Roth just won an Oscar for her work on Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, so I’d say our cast is in good hands.
