Greta Gerwig’s directorial debut, Lady Bird, saw her nominated for an Oscar. Turns out her next project may be a new adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women for Columbia Pictures.

According to Variety, Meryl Streep, Emma Stone, Saoirse Ronan, Florence Pugh and Timothée Chalamet are in talks to star. Ronan and Chalamet both starred in Lady Bird.

The timeless tale of four sisters – Meg, Jo, Amy and Beth – experiencing both hardship and adventure in Civil War New England. Though the March family may be poor, their lives are rich with colour, as they play games, put on wild theatricals, make new friends, argue, grapple with their vices, learn from their mistakes, nurse each other through sickness and disappointments, and get into all sorts of trouble. In this simple, enthralling tale, Louisa May Alcott created four of American literature’s most beloved “little women”.

Gerwig was initially brought in to rewrite a draft for the long in development film but after the success of Lady Bird the studio moving things around so she can direct it.

If this all works out, there is a huge amount of talent involved so lots of potential for greatness.

Amy Pascal set to produce with Denise Di Novi and Robin Swicord. Andrea Giannetti will oversee the production for Columbia Pictures.
