Although we are in full swing of series, the cinema continues to occupy a leading place in the entertainment universe. This year, the big production companies have promised us incredible movies and even streaming services have announced the most desirable titles. The last to reveal a future premiere have been those of the team of Netflix, which are developing an adaptation of the novel ‘Persuasion’ by Jane Austen. We can tell you that it will not leave anyone indifferent.
At the moment, little is known about this new version of ‘Persuasion’, but we have enough data to know that it is not just another adaptation. As it has advanced famed British theater director Carrie Cracknell, who will be in charge of directing the filming ‘set’, in this Netflix movie They have decided to take a time jump. Instead of taking place in the time of Jane Austen, the protagonists will interpret the same story in the present time.
As the protagonist of the plot, they will have actress Dakota Johnson, who will play the young Anne Elliot, 27 years old. Her name is synonymous with success and it seems to us that she has the perfect character and face to embody a powerful woman from the imaginary Jane Austen. Especially if what they prepare is a modern and ingenious version of ‘Persuasion’, which was Jane Austen’s last novel.
This is the synopsis that The Hollywood Reporter has revealed about the new adaptation of ‘Persuasion’ that Netflix is preparing:
“Living with her snobbish family on the brink of bankruptcy, Anne Elliot is a nonconformist woman with modern sensibilities. When Frederick Wentworth, the handsome man she once rejected, returns to her life, Anne must choose between letting go back or listen to your heart when it comes to giving second chances. “
Reviewing Jane Austen novel adaptations, we have known immediately that it will have nothing to do with the best known. We do not expect a reproduction of the book, but a modern version of the iconic story.
Rather than encounter something like Keira Knightley’s ‘Pride and Prejudice’, this movie will be more like the ‘Bridget Jones’ or ‘Clueless’ stories, that are inspired by stories of the British writer. Specifically in ‘Pride and Prejudice’ and ‘Emma’, respectively.
If you are looking for a more faithful version of the Jane Austen story, you will be delighted to know that this is not the only adaptation of ‘Persuasion’ in the works. Australian actress Sarah Snook will also star in an upcoming version and the characters will live in the era in which the novel originally takes place.
Although this version of ‘Persuasion’ does not have a confirmed release date, it is presumed for 2022. And we have seen the first images of the shoot, that is taking place in Bath (Great Britain), and the first characterizations of Dakota Johnson como Anne Elliot.
Dakota Johnson will be accompanied by a great cast that has been confirmed in recent weeks. Thus, complete the cast Richard E. Grant, Henry Golding (like Mr. Elliot), Suki Waterhouse, Cosmo Jarvis (como el capitán Frederick Wentworth), Lydia Rose Bewley, Mia McKenna-Bruce (como Mary Elliot), Nikki Amuka-Bird, Edward Bluemel, Doc Brown, Yolanda Kettle, Izuka Hoyle, Stewart Scudamore (como el almirante Croft) y Nia Towle.
We will be attentive to every detail that is revealed about this version of Jane Austen. Thus we will compose a better elaborated map about what will be history and we will be able to clear doubts.
