Deadline is reporting that Chris Cooper is the latest to join Greta Gerwig's upcoming production of Little Women. This marks the third time Cooper and Meryl will share the screen, following 2002's Adaptation (for which Cooper won a Best Supporting Actor Oscar) and 2013's August: Osage County.
My guess is that Cooper will portray Laurie's (Timothée Chalamet) grandfather, James Lawrence, who lives across the street from the March family.
Filming starts next week near Boston! The full, star-studded cast list can be found here.
