New “Little Women” Film in the Works from Clare Niederpruem

28 April 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Little Women” (1994)

Jo March would be so pleased. A new adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s coming-of-age classic “Little Women” is in the works and a woman director is at the helm. According to Deadline, “Switched at Birth” actress Lea Thompson has signed on to play matriarch Marmee in Clare Niederpruem’s directorial debut. No word yet on who will portray protagonist Jo or her sisters Meg, Beth, and Amy.

First published in two volumes in 1868 and 1869, “Little Women” follows the Civil War-era lives of the March family. The story is told mainly from the perspective of Jo, the second-eldest daughter, who chafes at the constraints she faces as a girl but pursues her passion of writing anyway. The novel begins as the four sisters and Marmee prepare for Christmas without Mr. March, who is away fighting for the Union.

Niederpruem is adapting “Little Women” with her writing partner, Kristi Shimek. Marybeth Sprows and Chris Donahue of Paulist Productions are producing with Main Dog ProductionsMaclain Nelson and Stephen Shimek. Besides Thompson, Lucas Grabeel (also of “Switched at Birth”) is the only other actor attached to the project. He is set to play Laurie, the March family’s neighbor and Jo’s best friend.

Principal photography for the film will begin in June with a theatrical release planned for 2018, the novel’s 150th anniversary.

Little Women” has been adapted for the big screen several times, most recently in 1994. Gillian Armstrong directed the Winona Ryder-starrer from a script by Robin Swicord. Armstrong’s adaptation also featured Susan Sarandon, Kirsten Dunst, Claire Danes, and Christian Bale. Katharine Hepburn and June Allyson portrayed Jo in the 1933 and 1949 film versions, respectively.

Previously, we reported plans of another “Little Women” iteration in development, penned by Greta Gerwig and produced by Amy Pascal, Denise Di Novi, and Swicord. It is unclear whether that film is still in development. Currently, there is no mention of it on Pascal or Gerwig’s IMDb page.

New “Little Women” Film in the Works from Clare Niederpruem was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

Newswire: Lea Thompson to play Marmee in a new adaptation of Little Women

27 April 2017 1:46 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

There comes a time in every actress’ life when it’s time to put away childish things and settle down into a nice, stable Louisa May Alcott adaptation. Sure, it might not be as exciting as having sex with a duck or drawing a successful comic strip, but this is 2017. No one reads comic strips anymore. Thus, Lea Thompson has been cast in the role of March family matriarch Marmee in an upcoming film adaptation of Little Women, a project she’s embarking upon with her Switched At Birth co-star Lucas Grabeel, who will play boy next door Laurie.

It remains to be seen how this particular movie will differ from previous adaptations of Little Women, which has been made into a feature film six different times thus far, most recently in 1994 with Susan Sarandon and Winona Ryder. Luckily, though, it doesn‘t seem to have anything to ...
