The Little Lady Laura

.
I don't know if I can really sum up todays news about Laura Dern joining the cast of Greta Gerwig's forthcoming Little Women adaptation better than I did wit my all-caps happy-dance full-force freak-out on Twitter, so why try...

I have taken a moment and a breath to calm myself though, so let's just step back and take stock in the cast that Miss Greta has assembled (or yes is in the process of assembling whatever let me believe they will all happen please). So far the names we have are Lady Bird stars Saoirse Ronan and Timothée Chalamet, plus Emma Stone and Florence Pugh and some lady named Meryl Streep, and oh right when I wasn't looking they went and added James Norton...

(PS - I just posted a new photo-shoot 
of Mr. Norton over on the Tumblr.)

Fantastic cast and all, but do we really need another Little Women???

Why hasn't Norton blown up yet? He is a fantastic actor and he is easy on the eyes...

Coming here to say exactly what mtmslg said. I'm sure it'll be fine, maybe even great, but Gerwig is such a unique, vital voice in cinema right now, why use it to make such a square story?

I've never been much of a LITTLE WOMEN fan personally but I do get its appeal, especially for little girls, and Greta must have her reasons why she thinks a new version is needed. Let's wait and see!
