More 'Little Women' Intel; Streep's Role, Filming Dates


  • Last week, it was announced that Greta Gerwig would direct a remake of Little Women, which was discussed in this ONTD post

  • It was fairly obvious who the younger actors announced would be playing from the jump: Saiorse Ronan as Jo, Emma Stone as Meg, Florence Pugh as Amy and Timothée Chalamet as Laurie, with Beth's casting TBD.

  • The LA Times spoke with Robin Swicord, the screenwriter for the 1994 adaptation and a producer for this one, and she had some additional info.

  • Contrary to previous assumptions, Meryl Streep won't be playing the matriach of the March family, Marmie. Instead she'll be playing their wealthy and hard to please aunt, Josephine March.

  • Aunt Josephine will be a bigger part in Gerwig's adaptation than it has been in previous iterations, as Gerwig's screenplay will focus more on the time after the sisters leave the family home.

  • The screenplay will cut backward and forward in time, centering on the theme of young women entering the adult world rather than being a straightforward narrative adaptation.

  • Filming is set to begin October 1st in Boston, with the film aiming for a fall 2019 release date.
