Twilight Author, Stephenie Meyer will be producing the Jane Austen-inspired Austenland, an adaptation of the Shannon Hale novel according to MTV News.
The movie is about a woman who ruins her love life due to her obsession with Mr. Darcy. She goes to Austenland, which is an Austen-themed resort in England and falls for the actor who plays Mr. Darcy at this resort.
The cast of the film has not been finalized but so far includes Keri Russell, J.J. Field, Bret McKenzie, Jennifer Coolidge, Jane Seymour, Rupert Vansittart and James Callis.
Not only will Meyer be making her debut outside the world of Forks, but newcomer Jerusha Hess will be directing the film.
Meyer says that Twilight is inspired by Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, so much to the point where every so often, Bella’s character in the book compares her relationship with Edward to Elizabeth’s relationship with Mr. Darcy.
Meyer went into producing with the final two movies of the Twilight series, Breaking Dawn, and will also produce the adaptation of her book, The Host.
Looks like Meyer is looking for non-vampire jobs since the finale of the Twilight series that made her millions is quickly approaching.
Breaking Dawn part 1 is set to hit theatres this November but fans will have to wait a full year for the final installment which will be released fall 2012.
