Sony Sets Up ‘Little Women’ Adaptation with Olivia Milch Writing (EXCLUSIVE)

Denise Di Novi and Robin Swicord are producing

Sony Pictures has set up a new adaptation of  “Little Women,” bringing on Olivia Milch to pen the script.

Denise Di Novi and Robin Swicord are producing the latest version of Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel about four sisters growing up after the Civil War.

The most recent film adaptation was Gillian Armstrong’s 1994 version, which Sony was also a part of, with a cast that included Winona Ryder, Kirsten Dunst and a very young Christian Bale. That pic made $95 million at the worldwide box office and landed three Oscar nominations including one for Ryder in the lead actress category. Earlier versions starred Katharine Hepburn (1933) and Elizabeth Taylor (1949, pictured).

Milch, who is the daughter of David, has not had any major credits and this assignment would mark her first major studio gig.
