Coming Soon: New Jane Austen Movies for 2010/2011

New Jane Austen adapted or inspired of films for 2010 and 2011. From a modern Pride and Prejudice to a Bollywood take on Emma (Aisha) to a Latina spin of Sense and Sensibility (From Prada to Nada). Plus a film version of ITV's 2008 Lost In Austen (still in development, according to IMDB) to a zombie parody of Pride and Prejudice (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies). Looks like there's something for everyone from an often Jane-Austen-novel-adapted-or-inspired-of-films to check out or look forward to soon (starting in August).

Here's a list of some JA related films currently filming, in post-production, and or still in-development for a possible release of 2010 and 2011.
