Ellen Page To Star As Jane Eyre
The adorable star of Juno and Hard Candy has signed on to play Jane Eyre in upcoming adaption. The BBC film will be produced by the same person who brought us The Other Boleyn Girl. No director has been attached as yet.
Even though I have seen countless versions of Jane Eyre, I am very interested in seeing this one. Ellen Page has usually played modern, wiser than her years type characters, so having her play a mousy 19th century governess will be a challenge.
If Page can nail this role then she will have her choice of roles and not be subjected to typecasting. No word yet on when this film will be released.
Update! This blog got mention on The Week Daily. I am so stoked. ;o) Click here if you want to check it out.
