joker origin movie

Todd Phillips‘s origin movie about Gotham City’s Clown Prince of Crime now has an official title: Joker. Looks like the film took Sean Parker’s advice and dropped the “the.” (It’s cleaner.) They’re moving quickly on this one, because Joker, which stars Joaquin Phoenix, is coming to theaters next year.

Meanwhile, the wait to see Quentin Tarantino‘s new movie just got a couple of weeks shorter. Sony Pictures has shifted some release dates around on its calendar, and the result is a new Once Upon a Time in Hollywood release date, the long-delayed adaptation of The Crow biting the dust for seemingly the hundredth time, and some other additions that fans of Little Women and the Valiant comic Bloodshot might be interested to learn about.

little women remake

What makes a story timeless? It’s a loaded question, with infinite answers, but there are certain through-lines when you take a monocled look. The stories that get retold, over and over ad nauseum, are elemental: hero’s journeys, love stories, arch enemies. Easily adaptable, impressionable by nature; no matter how they are told, how closely they adhere to origin, they feel new. Jesus, Hamlet, Jane Eyre. They are fables ripe with possibility.

When it was announced last week that Greta Gerwig’s follow-up to Lady Bird – her first solo feature as a writer and director, which earned her dual Oscar nods as a result – would be an adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s seminal novel Little Women, there was a bit of a backlash. There are, to date, six film adaptations of Little Women, with a seventh – a modern retelling starring Lea Thompson – due later this year. Additionally, there have been four BBC miniseries based on the book – including one that came out just last year – a made-for-TV musical in 1958, a 2012 Lifetime movie, and several anime spinoffs. Why, some wondered, do we need another?

little women first look

Little Women is one of the all-time classic American stories, so it makes sense that it’s being adapted into a television series by the…BBC? Well, not that much sense, but the British TV network excels in churning out high-quality period dramas, which bodes well for the new Little Women, especially since it has to live up to the defining  adaptation, the 1994 film starring Winona Ryder, Claire Danes, Kirsten Dunst, and Christian Bale at their ’90s wunderkind peaks.

BBC One and PBS’ Masterpiece’s TV adaptation doesn’t have quite the big-name cast that the 1994 Little Women had, but in the Little Women first look, it seems that they’ve captured the loveliness and charm of the novel.
