Entertainment News for Jane Austen Fans

Three Jane Austen Dramas for ITV

Let's just hope that we will be able to get a hold of these over on our side of the pond!

Anne Hathaway to star as Jane Austen in BECOMING JANE

Reasons to be excited:

  1. Based loosely on my favorite bio, Jane Austen, a Life by Claire Tomalin.
  2. Maggie Smith as Lady Gresham.
  3. James McAvoy playing Austen's real life love interest, Tom Lefroy.

I'm not a HUGE Ann Hathaway fan, but I'm still excited to see this movie! Maybe Ann Hathaway is right for the role because shes pretty but not Hollywood pretty and thats how I would imagine Jane Austin to be.

Hey where is the post about Billie Piper playing Fannie Price? When will that be out, I'm really excited about that one! We should do a Jane Austin night soon with Crystal! But lets do the ones we don't watch as often... I mean there is always room for Colin Firth but some of the other movies we rarely get a chance to see.
