When you think of Jane Austen, you undoubtedly think of boring high school English class or Colin Firth. I know this because everyone thinks of those two things when Jane Austen comes to mind.
Keri Russell and everyone involved in Austenland are setting out to add their names to that list, as teased in the following trailer:
Starring along with Russell is comedic stalwart Jennifer Coolidge and one half of the Flight of the Conchords, Bret McKenzie. Of course, if ever there was a movie that almost demanded Jane Seymour be a part, Austenland is it.
Based on Shannon Hale novel of the same name, Austenland is produced by fellow author/Twilight scribe Stephenie Meyer and is Jerusha Hess' directorial debut.
Austenland opens to limited release on August 16th.
