SENSIBILIDAD to be modern-set S&S adaptation

Standard

We previously posted a tantalizing tidbit about a possible new S&S adaptation, and Alert Janeite Arwen came up with the goods: it will be a modern-set Spanish language (we assume) adaptation called SENSIBILIDAD.

Currently, (playwright Luis Alfaro) is collaborating with director Fina Torres on Sensibilidad, a contemporary adaptation of Sense and Sensibility set in Los Angeles.

Coolness! And kudos to Arwen for tracking down the info.

S&S4 in USA?

Standard

Alert Janeite Cinthia sent us some news about an adaptation of S&S that is being filmed in the U.S.!

The links are in Spanish, but here is Cinthia’s recap:

The Venezuelan film director Fina Torres is in her country to participate in a cinema workshop and while interviewed there, she mentioned she is currently working in 3 different film projects, among them:

“an adaptation of Jane Austen’s “Sense and Sensibility” in USA”

Cinthia can’t tell (and neither can we) if she means S&S3 or another project entirely–perhaps a modern-set version? We’ll keep an eye out for more news!
