Starring: Dakota Johnson, Cosmo Jarvis, Henry Goulding, Mia McKenna-Bruce, Jake Siame, Richard E Grant, Nikki Amuka-Bird, Yolanda Kettle
Directed by Carrie Cracknell, Persuasion is an upcoming American drama based on Jane Austen's novel of the same name. With an extensive star cast, this version of the famous novel will retell the story with a "modern, witty approach". Austen's novels have always been in demand for film adaptations. After Emma’s release in 2022 and several adaptations of The Pride and Prejudice, it is not much of a surprise that another Jane Austen adaptation is in store.
Speaking about directing this adaptation of a timeless masterpiece, director Carrie Cracknell said:
"With period pieces, I’m always interested in there being a connection between then and now, I think period films often teach you as much about the moment they were made in as they do the moment that they’re replicating, somehow."
The story will revolve around Anne Elliot, who lives with her snooty family. Eight years after being persuaded to let go of her suitor of humble origin, Captain Frederick Wentworth, she meets him again. Anne is an incredible woman with a modern mindset who needs to choose between putting her past behind or seizing a second chance at true love.
