Wasikowska and Fassbender Boarding Jane Eyre


Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland) and Michael Fassbender (Inglourious Basterds) are in talks to star in Sin nombre helmer Cary Fukunaga’s feature adaptation of Charlotte Bronte’s classic novel, Jane Eyre.

Variety says the project is a period piece but will play up the gothic elements of the story about Jane (Wasikowska), a demure governess who discovers her surly employer Rochester (Fassbender) is harboring a dark secret.

British company Ruby Films’ Alison Owen and Paul Trijbits are producing with BBC Films and Focus Features from a script by Moira Buffini.
