Last week, it was revealed that Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” might not be ready in time for the upcoming Cannes Film Festival. Deep into post-production, speculation was that the latest from the “Pulp Fiction” director, and Cannes veteran, might only make it into the French festival at the last minute. But now, thanks to a new report, it appears that Sony has a contingency plan if Tarantino can’t debut at Cannes and it involves another high-profile film from an Oscar-nominated director.
Variety is reporting that Greta Gerwig’s “Little Women” adaptation is rumored to be Sony’s back-up plan if “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” can’t make it to Cannes. The report says rumors place both “Little Women” and ‘Once Upon a Time’ in post-production at this time, but it would appear that the former is much further along than the latter and would be available to step into the French event if necessary.
