The film is the eighth cinema adaptation of the tale, which is set in 1860s New England in the aftermath of the American Civil War and explores the lives of the March sisters. Gerwig reunites with her Lady Bird stars Saoirse Ronan (who plays Jo), Timothée Chalamet (Laurie) and Tracy Letts (who plays a publisher).
Sarah Polley was originally set to direct in 2016, but Gerwig was brought in as a replacement, and has redrafted Polley’s script. Watson replaces Emma Stone, who left for scheduling reasons.
The film opens in the US on Christmas Day and in the UK on Boxing Day.
