Jane Austen’s Persuasion is set to get a modern retelling at Netflix with Dakota Johnson starring. Per Deadline, the film’s synopsis is as follows:
“Anne Elliot is an unconforming woman with modern sensibilities, living with her snobby family who are on the brink of bankruptcy. When Frederick Wentworth — the dashing one she once sent away — crashes back into her life, Anne must choose between putting the past behind her or listening to her heart when it comes to second chances.”Deadline
Carrie Cracknell is making the leap from directing on the stage (most recently with Jake Gyllenhall’s Sea Wall/A Life) will helm the film in her directorial debut.
