Fans of Jane Austen may well be in for a treat, when the movie Austenland hits the big screen in a few weeks time. Austenland stars Keri Russell in the lead role, while the supporting cast includes another impressive turn from the delightful Jennifer Coolidge.
Austenland centres around a Jane Austen fan, who heads off to a Jane Austen style theme park, where the people dress like they are from a Jane Austen novel. The excited young woman hopes to find her Mr Darcy at the theme park, where she meets a number of interesting characters.
As well as starring Keri Russell and Jennifer Coolidge, the cast of Austenland also includes Jane Seymour, James Callis plus others. Austenland is directed by Jerusha Hess, who co-wrote the screenplay along with Shannon Hale, who wrote the novel of the same name. Austenland opens on August 14 in limited theatres across the US, before then hitting the big screen in the UK on September 27.
