It is unknown which sister Watson, 28, will play, though production will reportedly begin next month.

Other big names linked to the Gerwig-directed film include Meryl Streep and Laura Dern.

Little Women is a 1868 novel by Louisa May Alcott and features the March sisters in post-civil war America. It has been the subject of several film adaptions, including a 1994 version starring Winona Ryder.

In 2017, the BBC aired a TV mini-series starring Michael Gambon and Angela Lansbury.

Harry Potter star Watson previously played Belle in Disney’s 2017 live action version of Beauty And The Beast.
