Ellen Page is Jane Eyre

Shoving her career forward and grabbing a role that won’t see her wearing a hoodie for once, Ellen Page is going the corset route to play Jane Eye in a new BBC Films production.

She’ll play the titular role, a mousy governess who ends up falling for her taciturn employer Mr Rochester, who’s hiding a terrible dark secret.

There’s no director attached yet, but Moira Buffini has already bashed out the script. Variety has gotten a case of the vapours over the story .
