Greta Gerwig is penning a new take on Little Women for Sony…
It’s been a little while now since we’ve seen a take on Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women arriving on cinema screens. Rest assured though, chums, that there’s another one on the way.
Gillian Armstrong helmed the last movie take on the book in 1994 (pictured), which starred Susan Sarandon, Winona Ryder, Clare Danes, Christian Bale and Kirsten Dunst. The new version was originally in the hands of Sarah Polley (Stories We Tell, Take This Waltz). However, Sony has now hired Greta Gerwig to take a pass at the screenplay. Whether she’ll build on what Polley has already written, or start afresh, is not yet clear.
Neither is it clear at this stage whether Gerwig is likely to star in the new movie. We suggest the odds aren’t bad there.
