Of course, you read it in high school—ok, college. And maybe you saw the classic 1994 version with Joan Fontaine and Orson Welles on TCM. But Cary Fukunaga (fresh from his award-winning Sin Nombre) is sure to bring a fresh spin to Charlotte Brontë’s sturdy classic Jane Eyre. Mia Wasikowska (currently Alice in Alice in Wonderland) is set to play Jane and Michael Fassbender (Inglourious Basterds) will be Rochester in the production that starts shooting next week in England. This new version is penned by Moira Buffini with a cast that includes Judi Dench, Sally Hawkins, and Jamie Bell. James Schamus, CEO of Focus Features, comments, “Cary is the ideal choice to realize this unforgettable story in its traditional setting, yet with contemporary vitality and spirit. With two of today’s most promising new stars in Mia and Michael, plus an outstanding supporting cast, this will be a Jane Eyre for the ages.” To read the full press release, go here.
