Jane by the Sea New Rom Com of Jane Austens Life
The life of Jane Austen is to be the subject of an upcoming film, titled Jane by the Sea. The film, which is set to be a romcom, is based on the recent semibiographical novel of the same name by Carolyn V Murray.
The script has also been written by Murray, and will combine events from Austen’s own life with scenes from her texts. The film is set to focus on the most significant relationships of Austen’s own life and to trace how these are linked to or reflected within her works.
At present, no cast or director have been confirmed. Austen’s works also continue to inspire new productions, as next year sees the release of the highly anticipated Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Director Whit Stilman is also working on an adaptation of Austen’s short story Love and Friendship, which is set to star Kate Beckinsale and Chloe Sevigny. In addition to the many television and film versions of her works, Austen’s own life has also been the subject of a range of adaptations. The 2007 film, Becoming Jane, which starred Anne Hathaway as the much loved author, received middling reviews.
