After Lady Bird, our imaginary BFF Greta Gerwig probably has her pick of just about any project she wants — as she damn well should. But it looks like the filmmaker behind last year’s awards season fave is sticking to the coming-of-age genre (for now), with a new take on Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel Little Women. If that match made in heaven isn’t enough for you, try this: Meryl Streep, Emma Stone, Saoirse Ronan, Timothée Chalamet and Florence Pugh are all circling parts in what is now officially my favorite movie of whatever year it’s released.
Look, we’ve all heard some pretty out-there pitches in TV land over the years, where once upon a time Sharknado was a nonsense word. The CW too has been guilty of this, and if “Sexy Mary, Queen of Scots“ can work, why not a gritty, “hyper-stylized” and dystopian take on Little Women? Okay, we may need a minute with this one.
