According to Entertainment Weekly, Lady Bird writer and director Greta Gerwig has set Little Women as her next film. And it gets even better. In talks to join the cast are Lady Bird alums Saoirse Ronan and Timothée Chalamet, Emma Stone, Florence Pugh, and Meryl Streep. No, you are not dreaming. The latest adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s novel hails from Sony Pictures and producer Amy Pascal. According to Variety, which first reported the news, the project will star Ronan as the protagonist Jo, Stone as Meg, Streep as Marmee, Pugh as Amy, and Chalamet as Laurie Laurence. After great success with indie films as an actor and writer, Gerwig broke out in the mainstream last year with Lady Bird, the coming-of-age story starring Ronan and Chalamet, which earned five Oscar nominations, including Best Picture, Best Director for Gerwig, and Best Actress for Ronan. Edit: In a follow-up story which sounds more official than the first announcement, it has been said that Meryl is actually going to be playing Aunt March. The Los Angeles Times first broke the story, and points out that the new film will focus more on the March sisters in their young adult years, which likely means more focus on Aunt March and her very contentious selection of which sister to bring to Europe. But, really, “Meryl Streep gets to play any part she wants to play,” as Robin Swicord explained to the Times, as if that wasn’t obvious. Swicord wrote the 1994 version of Little Women and is working on the new adaptation as a producer. The film is expected to begin filming this October in Boston and could be in theaters as soon as next fall.
