“Lady Bird” Trio Reunite On “Little Women”

“Lady Bird” director Greta Gerwig and that film’s two young stars Saoirse Ronan and Timothee Chalamet are in talks to reunite on a new adaptation of the Mary Louise Alcott classic “Little Women” at Columbia Pictures.

Meryl Streep, Emma Stone and Florence Pugh are also in talks to star in the film which Gerwig has set as her next directorial effort.

The story follows teenaged sisters Amy, Jo, Beth and Meg and their mother in Civil War era Massachusetts as they navigate their new town, true love, and their first holiday without their minister father.

Gerwig was previously attached as a writer but has since taken over directorial duties in what will be her first studio film.
