The upcoming adaptation of Little Women is proving to possess the créme de la créme of Hollywood actors.

The film will be the eighth big-screen adaptation of the novel by Louisa May Alcott.

The story tells the tale of sisters Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy growing up in poverty in Massachusetts.

The latest version by Lady Bird director, Greta Gerwig, already boasts an A-list cast of Meryl Streep, Timothée Chalamet, Saoirse Ronan, Laura Dern, and Emma Watson.

The Beauty and the Beast actress replaced fellow Emma, Emma Stone, in the project due to scheduling conflicts, while Timothée and Saoirse previously worked with Greta on the Oscar-nominated Lady Bird.

The latest star to join the project is Academy Award winner, Chris Cooper.

No official roles have been announced as yet.

Greta’s Little Women is scheduled for release on the 25th of December 2019.
