Sarah Snook to star in 'Persuasion' Film Adaptation


Sarah Snook of Succession is set to star (/alliteration) in an adaptation of Jane Austen's final novel Persuasion. Jessica Swale (Summerland) will write the adaptation, with Mahalia Belo set to direct for Searchlight.

The novel follows Anne Elliot who, many years after refusing the proposal of a young naval officer, finds herself rethinking her decisions when he returns from war a wealthy and decorated Captain. Snook is set to play Elliot, with no casting yet announced for the other lead.

Snook next appears in the Vanessa Kirby starrer Pieces of a Woman.

YASSS. Persuasion is my favorite Austen, and the Hinds-Root adaptation is still the best one in my opinion (eventhough they were really too old for the roles).
YEEEEEES
Yesss I'm loving this cast/crew so far
i loooooove persuasion. the amanda root/ciaran hinds version cannot be beat but i'll probably watch this.
so many people saying its their favorite austen novel...💓
it makes me happy. most people usually say pride and prejudice, but persuasion is so beautiful and heart wrenching.
I just finished reading Emma and BBC Emma is clearly the superior adaptation. I want to know what ONTD think.
