Little Women is getting a makeover and we can’t wait for news of the cast. There has been a number of adaptations including the 1933 version starring Katharine Hepburn and the 1949 version starring Elizabeth Taylor, but none since the iconic 1994 film starring Winona Ryder and Claire Danes.
Sony is said to be in talks with director Sarah Polley (Take This Waltz) to adapt the classic.
Little Women is one of the best loved books of all time. It follows the life of the four March sisters as they grow up in post Civil War America. Lovely Meg, talented Jo, frail Beth and spoiled Amy learn hard lessons of poverty and hardship when their mother leaves to care for their injured father.
The book chronicles Meg's joys and mishaps as a young wife and mother, Jo's struggle to become a writer, Beth's tragedy, and Amy's artistic pursuits and unexpected romance. The lively portrait of nineteenth- century family life is close to Alcott’s own life. She was one of four sisters. Her 22-year-old sister died of scarlet fever.
We are thinking definitely Jennifer Lawrence to play Jo March. Who is your pick?
