dakota

Dakota Johnson is set to star in “Persuasion,” based on the novel by Jane Austen, it was announced on Tuesday.

According to Netflix, the movie will remain true to the novel, but will comprise a “modern, witty approach” to Austen’s final book.

“Living with her snobby family on the brink of bankruptcy, Anne Elliot is an unconforming woman with modern sensibilities. When Frederick Wentworth – the dashing one she once sent away – crashes back into her life, Anne must choose between putting the past behind her or listening to her heart when it comes to second chances.”

Production is due to begin this summer.
