Stephenie Meyer and 'Austenland'?

Stephenie Meyer, a lady who doesn't really need an introduction has been pinned to produce Austenland, an indie romantic film of the same name by Steph's writer bud, Shannon Hale.


'Jane Hayes is a seemingly normal young New Yorker, but she has a secret. Her obsession with Mr. Darcy, as played by Colin Firth in the BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, is ruining her love life: no real man can compare. But when a wealthy relative bequeaths her a trip to an English resort catering to Austen-crazed women, Jane’s fantasies of meeting the perfect Regency-era gentleman suddenly become realer than she ever could have imagined.

Decked out in empire-waist gowns, Jane struggles to master Regency etiquette and flirts with gardeners and gentlemen—or maybe even, she suspects, with the actors who are playing them. It’s all a game, Jane knows. And yet the longer she stays, the more her insecurities seem to fall away, and the more she wonders: Is she about to kick the Austen obsession for good, or could all her dreams actually culminate in a Mr. Darcy of her own?'

Now anyone whose heard of Twilight (um, who hasn't?) probably knows that Steph is a mjr Jane Austen buff, so I guess this is fitting for her, my only question is, when did she start working on films? I know she 'produced' Breaking Dawn, but I guess she has decided to give producing and filmcaretaking a further exploration? Well, though I might not be a fan of Steph for personal reasons, I do wish her the best of luck with this film and other endeavors she takes on in the future, well, most endeavors at least.
