Stone out, Watson in, for Gerwig's "Little Women"

One Emma is out, another is in. Multiple sources have reported this afternoon that Emma Watson will be replacing Emma Stone in Greta Gerwig's upcoming adaptation of Little Women. Evidently Stone has promotional obligations for her upcoming film The Favorite (which I cannot wait to see) she cannot get out of.

This is an interesting turn of events only a little over a month before shooting is set to start. I'm a fan of Watson from the Harry Potter series, but I have to admit it seems like a tall order for her to step in for a recent Oscar-winner and then have to contend with the likes of Meryl Streep, Saoirse Ronan Laura Dern and Timothée Chalamet. Here's hoping Watson's up to the task. The role of Meg isn't a particularly flashy one, so maybe it'll be less of an issue than I expect.
