Oscar-nominated director Sarah Polley has signed on to direct a remake of Little Women, the classic Louisa May Alcott novel.
As reported by The Wrap, Toronto-born Polley is teaming with former Sony exec Amy Pascal, who’ll produce, on the project.
The novel, first published in 1868, has been brought to the screen before, including versions in 1933 and 1949, and was most recently remade in 1994 with a cast including Winona Ryder, Susan Sarandon, Claire Danes and Kirsten Dunst.
Little Women tells the coming-of-age story of a group of sisters in the years following the U.S. Civil War.
No stars have yet been cast.
