Abbie Cornish Sees Bright Star


Abbie Cornish in negotiations to topline Jane Campion’s period romance drama Bright Star.

The script, which Campion wrote and is directing, is based on the three-year romance between 19th century poet John Keats and Fanny Brawne, which was cut short by Keats’ untimely death at age 25. Cornish will portray Brawne.

The production is eyeing a late summer or early fall start.
