We previously reported on a new adaptation of Persuasion in development, and things seem to be moving along nicely as we now have our Captain Wentworth to go along with our Anne Elliot. The Hollywood Reporter, er, reports that Joel Fry has been cast opposite Sarah Snook as Anne Elliot.
No information about when filming will take place or a release date, but this seems to be a real thing. Shall we celebrate with a sea chantey? (The Editrix was into sea chanteys before they were cool.)
