» Fukunaga Joins Goth Scene with Brit List Favorite 'Jane Eyre'

by Gino Pagliuca, published on October 21, 2009 01:00:00

Despite not receiving any nods at the Gotham awards, Cary Fukunaga is perhaps the director who made the biggest splash in Park City earlier this year (I'd add Moon's Duncan Jones, 500 Days of Summer's Marc Webb to that list). Some critics mentioned Fukunaga and Hitch in the same sentence after having seen Sin Nombre, his next project might draw more comparisons. Variety is reporting that Ruby Films are looking to get the young director to work with a goth setting for another adaptation of Jane Eyre. Hitchcock's Rebecca was an homage of sorts to Charlotte Bronte's classic novel. Alison Owen and Paul Trijbits are producing with BBC Films. The pic would be lensed next year.

Scripted by Moira Buffini (the script found itself at the number 2 position right after Nowhere Boy on the Brit List last year), this would play up the gothic elements of the classic 19th century story about a governess who falls in love with her surly employer who has a dark secret. Ellen Page was originally attached but dropped the project. My question is: who would you have play the governess? Carey Mulligan?
