Exciting news! Apparently things are forward enough with Whit Stillman’s adaptation of Lady Susan (weirdly called Jane Austen’s Love and Friendship, but in Whit we trust) that Sienna Miller has been cast as Lady Susan Vernon.

Chloe Sevigny has also been cast as “her close friend,” we suppose meaning Mrs. Johnson.

Stillman told Screen: “The other two early novels Jane Austen wrote became Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility ­ the story of the brilliant Lady Susan Vernon’s struggles with the wealthy, smug De Courcy clan is perhaps her most sparkling comedy.

“In our search for the right Susan Sienna Miller showed how the role might be infused with freshness and verve. She is a wonderful talent who will lead a brilliant ensemble cast.”

“Whit’s delicious screenplay revolving around the fantastically selfish Lady Susan is filled with the pleasurable comedy and pithy social insights for which both Stillman and Austen are renowned,” said Protagonist CEO Mike Goodridge.

We are actually kind of excited about this.

P.S. Does anyone else remember Keen Eddie?
