This is amazing news for Little Women fans

'I want to do something splendid...something heroic or wonderful that won't be forgotten after I'm dead.'

In the best film news we’ve had in a while, Louisa May Allcott’s novel Little Women is being remade for the big screen.

The 19th Century story of four sisters – Jo, Amy, Meg and Beth – is an American classic originally published in 1868, and its last 1994 movie adaptation (there have been six in total) garnered three Academy Award nominations and featured a cast of young movie stars who went on to enjoy glittering careers: Christian Bale (Laurie), Kirsten Dunst (Amy), Claire Danes (Beth) and Winona Ryder

With a feminist movement in Hollywood and a wealth of brilliant young female actresses to go around, the timing for a Little Women remake couldn’t really be better.

Anyone else now want to go back and watch the 1994 version again?
