Variety has some news of note for book aficionados.

First, Emma Watson will be joining the upcoming adaptation of Little Women, the site reports.

She replaces Emma Stone, who had to bow out because of promotional obligations for her film The Favourite.

The roles of the March sisters have not been assigned publicly yet, but Greta Gerwig is writing the film and directing a cast that includes Meryl Streep, Laura Dern, Saoirse Ronan, Timothee Chalamet, and Florence Pugh.

From classic books to (modern) classic movies — Variety also reports that veteran screenwriter David Koepp has sold the publishing rights to his first book for seven figures.

Koepp is perhaps best known for writing Jurassic Park and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

In addition to his book deal for Cold Storage, he also nabbed a film deal for the novel.
