How do you think that Little Women can be remade in a fresh way?
Sony Pictures is developing a new adaptation of Little Women! This would be the first major film version in over 20 years, with newcomer Olivia Milch writing the screenplay and Sarah Polley (Away From Her) directing. It’s about time that audiences are reintroduced to the March sisters, their struggles, and their loves.
But with Little Women having already been adapted for film, TV, and the on- and Off-Broadway stages, how do you retell Louisa May Alcott’s timeless novel without seeming too out-of-touch, too eager to appeal to modern audiences, or simply copying what’s come before?
