Whit Stillman’s Jane Austen Film is Filming This Summer in Ireland

Whit Stillman’s film adaptation of the Jane Austen story Lady Susan is happening.  It was speculated that the film wouldn’t be happening because of news of the book and Stillman’s possible new Amazon Studios series.  However, Screendaily writer Andreas Wiseman breaks the exclusive story that the Jane Austen film will be made and that it will star Sienna Miller and Chloe Sevigny.  Filming is to start this summer, so plan on more updates soon.
