On September 27th 2013, here in the UK, Stephenie Meyer and Meghan Hibbett, of Fickle Fish Films, will be releasing their first film project Austenland; based on the novel of the same name, by Shannon Hale.
‘Austenland’ is a romantic comedy about 30-something, single Jane Hayes (Keri Russell),
a seemingly normal young woman with a secret: her obsession with all things Jane Austen.
But when she decides to spend her life savings on a trip to an English resort, catering to
Austen-crazed women, Jane’s fantasies of meeting the perfect Regency-era gentleman,
suddenly become more real than she ever could have imagined.
Based on the novel by Shannon Hale (who also co-wrote the script), the film was
written and directed by Jerusha Hess and produced
by Stephenie Meyer’s, Fickle Fish Films.
