    Watson and Ronan are Greta Gerwig's 'Little Women'

    Amy Pascal has come on to produce “Little Women” for Sony Pictures, which has hired Oscar-nominated screenwriter Sarah Polley to adapt Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel, TheWrap has learned.

    Loosely based on the author and her three sisters, “Little Women” is a period drama that follows the four March sisters as they come of age following the Civil War.

    Polley does not have a deal to direct “Little Women” at this time, so while Sony might be courting her for that job down the line, she won’t decide whether to step behind the camera until she finishes writing the script, according to an insider.

    Pascal will produce “Little Women” with Denise Di Novi and Robin Swicord, marking the rare studio project to boast three female producers as well as a female screenwriter adapting a book written by a woman.

    What's the dream cast for this?

    I'm sure people will complain but Little Women is timeless to me, so I'm okay with this. Plus, it's Sarah Polley!

    Great for Sarah Polley! Hope she is directing it too.

    Not sure if this project is really, really necessary, but yay for more women

    The title is a misleading EFFING MESS. Only 1 real Amazing Amy, she who gave us the masterpiece of acting in Gone Girl.

    I think Legend Amy P. wants jlaw in this. Hopefully, Saoirse gets cast too.

    Just keep Felicia Johnson and Swedish Felicia away from this!!

    i don't think Lawrence fits in period pieces (further back than just the 70s)

    So here for Polley.

    I want Shailene Woodley in this.

    she just doesn't strike me as an actress that would fit in another century- she's too much of her time. kind of like how julia roberts was never believable in period roles either

    Haha, I definitely assumed that Pike was involved based on the thread title.

    Either way, it's Sarah Polley working! Yay for that!

    Lol, I was just listening to the score of the '94 one earlier today!


    I love the '94 version, but this is definitely one of the stories that can be adapted every so often. I'll have to think about who my dream cast would be.

    I just watched Mary Reilly! That was not Roberts at her best.

    I was thinking about Winona Ryder and how she worked in period and contemporary. Maybe Lawrence is more roberts. Woodley is more Ryder?

    The most interesting part of this for me is that between this and that failed attempt to adapt that John Green novel it seems like Polley really wants to do studio material. I never would have thought it, but I'm happy for her. Get money!

    (but where oh where is Alias Grace? )
