    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?
