Filming For Jane Eyre Begins Next Week
I know adaptations of centuries-old novels aren't usually the things that get the movie fan community's blood pumping, but I am excited about the upcoming movie version of Jane Eyre, and you should be too. Not only is it directed by Sin Nombre up-and-comer Cary Fukunaga, not only are the likes of Judi Dench and Sally Hawkins showing up in lead roles, but it stars two of the most promising recently famous actors out there-- Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender.
Wasikowska, who you know as Tim Burton's Alice, and Fassbender, who you know as Sgt. Archie Hicox from Inglourious Basterds, will star their tortured love affair on the English heaths shortly. Focus announced this week that filming begins next week. Based on Charlotte Bronte's novel, Jane Eyre stars Wasikowska as the titular heroine, a governess hired to care for the children of the cold, imposing Mr. Rochester (Fassbender). Per the press release, "The isolated and imposing residence – and Mr. Rochester’s coldness – have sorely tested the young woman’s resilience, forged years earlier when she was orphaned. As Jane reflects upon her past and recovers her natural curiosity, she will return to Mr. Rochester – and the terrible secret that he is hiding…" Those of you who remember freshman year English can fill in the rest.
