Little Women is getting another remake – but it sounds so epic, we might just let them have this one.

The novel, written by Louisa May Alcott, is reportedly in the running to be picked up by Greta Gerwig following the success of Lady Bird last year.

And whos in the cast? Only Meryl Streep, Emma Stone, Saoirse Ronan and Timothee Chalamet, if reports are correct.

While the official announcement on casting is yet to be made, the internet has been buzzing over the potential line-up.

All of the above have earned nominations for, and even won, Oscars, so this looks like a mission for awards season glory should it go ahead.

Saoirse and Timothee have also previously worked with Greta Gerwig, both taking roles in Lady Bird.



For a book that was released in 1868, its not done too badly, and has become one of the most loved classic books of all time.

The BBC released a mini-series based on the books last year, and this year Lea Thompson stars in a modern adaptation of the film.

Katharine Hepburn starred in one of the first recreations of the book back in 1933.

If all goes ahead, the film will be made by Colombia Pictures, and arrive at some time next year.
