Greta Gerwig's Little Women Remake Is Already Shaping Up to Have the Best Cast
Greta Gerwig is picking up steam on her next project, which will see her dusting off a true classic: the Oscar nominee has signed on to direct a new adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's Little Women.
If you missed it in high school English, Little Women follows four sisters — Amy, Jo, Beth, and Meg — who live with their mother in Massachusetts during the Civil War era. Their father is away, working as a chaplain in the war, and the family learns to lean on one another while spending their first holiday without him. The novel has been adapted for film six times, as well as having inspired TV musicals, plays, and even operas.
Gerwig was originally on board to write the movie but has since taken over as director, with a pretty impressive cast reportedly in talks (*cough* MERYL! *cough*). Keep reading to see who might be playing the beloved characters in Gerwig's Little Women.
