The amazing cast rounding out Greta Gerwig's upcoming adaptation of Little Women has been a hot topic this summer. So far, A-listers Meryl Streep, Laura Dern, Saoirse Ronan, Timothée Chalamet, and Florence Pugh have all signed on to star in Sony's retelling of Louisa May Alcott's beloved novel.
Sadly, according to Variety, unforeseen circumstances will prevent Emma Stone from appearing in the film. With production slated to begin next month, the studio is looking to Emma Watson to come onboard as Stone's replacement. While it was previously reported that Stone would be portraying the eldest sister Meg, the latest news claims that "roles are still being worked out," so it's uncertain which of the March sisters Watson will portray.
Despite Alcott's novel having been adapted for film and television over a dozen times, we're excited to see Gerwig's reimagining of this classic tale for a new generation. Watson joins an already stellar list of names, who are sure to breathe new life into Alcott's cherished cast of characters.
