Little Women

How many times do people like hearing the story of Louisa May Alcott's "Little Women"? A lot apparently. Though there have already been five movie adaptations (okay, one of those is silent; but still), it looks like a new generation will get to experience the life and loves of sisters Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy March.

Sony has tapped Olivia Milch to write the adaptation, and while she's not a name we've heard of, a random commenter noted in our On The Rise: 10 Screenwriters To Watch In 2013 feature that, "She's going to be big these next two years." So yes, we're paying attention. No word yet if this will stick to the book or try something new, but considering that the 1994 version with Winona Ryder, Kirsten Dunst, Claire Danes, Susan Sarandon and Christian Bale did decent at the box office and turned out three Oscar nominations, something tells us they won't rock the boat.

Meanwhile, ever busy "The Spectacular Now" and "(500) Days Of Summer" writers Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber are penning the big screen adaptation of "Me Before You" by Jojo Moyes. The story follows "a young English woman hired as the caretaker for an affluent Londoner paralyzed in an accident. Both are surprised by how the relationship blossoms." Uh, wasn't this called "Intouchables"? Anyway, we dig their track record so far, so we'll see how it turns out. [Variety/Deadline]
