Ellen Page is quickly making her presence known in Hollywood as a leading lady. Already an Oscar-nominated actress, Ellen is now set to play the role of Jane in the classic Jane Eyre. BBC Films has signed on to develop an adaptation of the Charlotte Bronte novel and has attached Page to play Jane. Moira Buffini wrote the screenplay; a director has not yet been chosen.
Ellen's not the first to play Jane; the book has been adapted to the screen several times. But we're confident this up-and-comer will have heads turning in this iconic role. The film starts shooting this Fall.
