A new adaptation of Charlotte Bronte‘s Jane Eyre will hit theaters in March 2011. The official trailer is embedded above–what do you think?
In 2009, Wasikowska starred in Alice in Wonderland. Fassbender will play the comic book villain, Magneto, in X-Men: First Class next year. Rumor has it Fassbender will also play a part in the upcoming Hobbit movies.
On Friday, news broke that Peter Jackson finally received the g0-ahead for his two-part adaptation of The Hobbit. Production could start as soon as February 2011.
Deadline Hollywood has the scoop: “Things must be getting close on The Hobbit, because casting buzz is getting strong in Hollywood. Word is Martin Freeman will soon be set to play Bilbo Baggins, that Jimmy Nesbitt has been offered a role and that Michael Fassbender is being pursued for another as is David Tennant. Ian McKellan and Andy Serkis are expected to reprise Gandalf and Gollum.”
As you wait for the production, we recommend watching the English translation of a Finnish miniseries (embedded above) that adapted J. R. R. Tolkien’s work way back in 1993.
