The CW Is Making a ‘Hyper-Stylized, Gritty’ Reboot of Little Women

The very un-gritty film version of Little Women.

Send a letter to father — remake fever has struck the CW! As Deadline reports, the network is currently developing a TV version of Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women. (Upon hearing the news, poor Beth immediately contracted remake fever and promptly died.) According to the report, this won’t be your great-great-grandmother’s Little Women: Instead, it’ll be a “hyper-stylized and gritty” retelling of the classic tale, which will see the four Marsh sisters “[banding] together in order to survive the dystopic streets of Philadelphia and unravel a conspiracy that stretches far beyond anything they have ever imagined.” Will Laurie be a zombie? Will Professor Bhaer be an actual bear? Literally anything is possible.
