Carrie Brownstein to pen unfinished Nora Ephron's screenplay for 'Lost In Austen' film version

After yesterday's news about Pride and Prejudice and Zombies movie moving forward and finally going into production, another Jane Austen related film project that's been in development since 2011 that the late Screenwriter/Director Nora Ephron was working on, writing the script and was supposed to be directing the film, but unfortunately, she passed away in 2012. The unfinished script and project has been on hold after the news of Ephron's death, but now it looks like it's back on as “Portlandia” star and co-creator Carrie Brownstein has come on board to write Lost in Austen movie, based on the original 2008 U.K. ITV series, according to Variety. The film version will have the same premise as the ITV series, but will be set in Brooklyn, New York (USA) instead of in England and the heroine character will be American (I think...but I don't know about the P&P characters) instead of British. Skyfall director Sam Mendes, who was once attached to direct this film is still on board to executive produced the LIA film under Columbia Pictures. No casting info. of the film as of yet.

Movie Casting News: Lily Collins out, Lily James in to star as Elizabeth Bennet with Sam Riley as Mr. Darcy in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies!

UPDATED 8/12/14‘Boardwalk Empire’s Jack Huston Joins ‘Pride And Prejudice And Zombies’ via Deadline

Jack Huston just closed his deal to play Wickham in the Burr Steers-directed adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's Pride And Prejudice And ZombiesRead full article here.

Here's something unexpected...since there was no news about this for a long time after the casting announcement last year of Lily Collins starring in the lead as Elizabeth Bennet in Pride and Prejudice And Zombies, Seth Grahame-Smith's film adaptation of Jane Austen's classic Pride and Prejudice, the project looked to be DOA and a no go. It looks like Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has resurrected and is back on (after so many false starts) and it's happening for real this time with a few new casting, new director, and filming news. According to Deadline, Lily Collins is out while Downton Abbey's Lily James (aka Lady Rose) is in! She will be playing the lead role Elizabeth Bennet. Sam Riley has been cast as Mr. Darcy and Bella Heathcote will play as Elizabeth's sister (no mention of which sister, but I'm guessing it's Jane Bennet). Filming starts next month and it's skated for a worldwide 2015 theater release.

Watch: Rosamund Pike in new trailer #2 for 'What We Did On Our Holiday'

The first trailer was hilarious, but not much Rosamund Pike on it. Now, a new trailer #2 for the upcoming romantic-comedy film, What We Did On Our Holiday starring Rosamund Pike and David Tennant has been released (via Lionsgate Films UK) along with another new poster (see above) and Miss Pike appears a little more with her name first on credits in both trailers and posters.

What We Did On Our holiday is about a feuding couple, Doug (David Tennant) and Abi (Rosamund Pike), who are taking their three children on a trip to Scotland for a big family gathering. They are in the midst of a difficult divorce, and have asked the kids to keep it a secret from their extended family. But as the inevitable feuds kick in, a completely unexpected turn of events involving the children causes further tensions to rise to the surface. And with the repercussions that ensue - hilarious and emotional in equal measure - the family are forced to put aside their differences and work together or else risk losing what they hold most dear.   
BBC Films and Origin Pictures will produce with backing from Creative Scotland. Shooting took place Scotland in summer this year with the film schedule for a 2014 release.
