Emma Watson to play in 'Little Women'



[Traduction fran├žaise]



Emma Watson is set to join Greta Gerwig’s star-studded remake of “Little Women.”
Sources say Watson is being eyed for the part originally intended for Emma Stone, who was unable to join the project for unknown circumstances. With production expected to start next month, Sony moved quickly to approach Watson.
Roles are still being worked out and it is unknown which sister Watson would be playing.
Gerwig is writing and directing, with A-listers Meryl Streep, Laura Dern, Saoirse Ronan, Timothee Chalamet, and Florence Pugh in negotiations to star in Sony’s retelling of the American classic.
The project has been set up at Columbia Pictures for some time, with Amy Pascal set to produce with Denise Di Novi and Robin Swicord. Andrea Giannetti will oversee the production for Sony.
The novel by Louisa May Alcott, which follows the March sisters in post-Civil War America, has been adapted several times into feature films, with the 1994 Winona Ryder version being the most popular. The BBC’s “Little Women” miniseries aired late last year.
Watson previously starred as Belle in Disney’s live action “Beauty and the Beast,” which became a massive hit and grossed over $1.2 billion worldwide. Most recently, she appeared opposite Tom Hanks in “The Circle.” She is repped by CAA and Untitled Entertainment
