Trailer Released for ‘Austenland’ by Shannon Hale

An official trailer has been released for a film adaptation of Shannon Hale‘s novel, Austenland.

We’ve embedded the video above–what do you think? The film hits theaters on August 16, 2013.

Twilight Saga author Stephenie Meyer served as a producer for this project. The cast includes Keri Russell, Jennifer Coolidge, and Jane Seymour. Russell plays a woman named Jane Hayes who idolizes Fitzwilliam Darcy from Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice.

According to Hollywood Crush, the story follows Hayes who decides to attend “the world’s only immersive Austen experience.” Once there, “she’s banished to the servants’ wing in the creepy tower and thought of as ‘peculiar’ by the band of Mr. Darcy impersonators (who, let’s be honest, probably have ‘peculiar’ listed as a job skill on their resumes). But like one of her favorite author’s protagonists, Jane vows to follow her own path.”
