Sony’s ‘Little Women’ Reboot Set with Amy Pascal

Former Sony Pictures chief Amy Pascal has come on board to produce the studio’s reboot of “Little Women” with Denise Di Novi and Robin Swicord.

Sony has also hired Sarah Polley to adapt the script from Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel about four sisters coming of age in a post-Civil War era.

The project was set up in 2013 with Di Novi and Swicord while Pascal was co-chair of Sony Pictures Entertainment and chair of its motion picture group. Di Novi also produced the 1994 Winona Ryder version with Swicord writing that screenplay.

Pascal signed a first-look deal with Sony last month as part of her exit. She’s also producing the upcoming “Spider-Man,” “Ghostbusters,” “Barbie” and folksinging vehicle “Girls Like Us.”

Polley’s credits include directing and writing “Away From Her,” “Take This Waltz” and the documentary “Stories We Tell.”

Polley is represented by WME, Circle of Confusion, Gary Goddard Agency and attorney Alan Wertheimer.

The news was first reported by the Wrap.
