We’re more than a little excited for the remake of Little Women.
Greta Gerwig is bringing to life the latest adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s famous work, with a cast hot enough to burn those pages.
The eighth version of the 1868 novel is set to star Meryl Streep, Saoirse Ronan, Timothée Chalamet, Laura Dern, Emma Watson, and Chris Cooper, among others.
The film will be set in the original time period which Alcott intended — the 1860s — and focus on the lives of the March sisters while jumping between timelines.
“This feels like autobiography,” Gerwig told Vanity Fair of her second directorial project. “When you live through a book, it almost becomes the landscape of your inner life…. It becomes part of you, in a profound way.”
The first official photos from the feature have now been released, showing Ronan, Watson, Chalamet, Streep, and Dern on set.
Little Women is due to be released on December 25th.
