Jane Eyre Gets Creepy Gothic Adaptation in 2011
Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre has been adapted countless times for both film and television, but Cary Fukunaga's upcoming version looks to be the most faithful thus far to the novel's roots in the Gothic. Fukunaga, who previously helmed Sundance award winner Sin Nombre, seems to have approached the material with an eye for the spookier elements of the story.
Mia Wasikowska stars in the titular role with Michael Fassbender taking on the part of Mr. Rochester. This looks quite promising for both fans of the novel and newcomers alike. Jane Eyre opens on March 11, 2011.
