Voltage Pictures Is Set To Make A New Romantic Comedy Based On Jane Austen’s Life ‘Jane By The Sea’

All the fans of English Literature who are in love with novelist Jane Austen would be delighted to know that Voltage Picture is coming up with a contemporary romcom number grounded on the life of the profuse author. Find out more!

Yet again, Jane Austen’s life will be dramatized and brought back into a big screen romantic comedy in the forthcoming film titled “Jane By The Sea,” rooted on the novel by Carolyn V Murray.


According to the Tracking Board, this humorous comedy will traverse the experiences and important relationships that have influenced roles and sequences from Jane Austen’s exemplary works. The movie will be an amalgamation of sequences from the novelist’s life and books.

The screenplay of the movie will be done by novelist Carolyn Murray who also penned the novel titled “Jane By The Sea,” while Lucy Mukerjee and Elizabeth Stanley will produce alongside with Rogers of Rialto Distributions and James Brown of Neon Films.

Jane Austen’s life and work has always been an inspiration from literature and has often been adapted in several movies and television stories. With famous classics as “Sense and Sensibility,” “Pride and Prejudice,” “Mansfield Park,” and “Emma,” Austen has become a ménage in Hollywood. “Bridget Jones Diary,” “Austenland,” and Clueless are some of the other works which have been inspired from Jane Austen’s novels.

The 2007 biopic film “Becoming Jane” which also centered on the development of Austen as an author, where Anne Hathaway played Austen, received average reviews, with Peter Bradshaw of Guardian summoning it ‘not persuasive.’ However, “Jane By The Sea,” will be a contemporary on the biopic technique.

Jane Austen’s adaptations has also produced successful hits, counting Joe Wright’s “Pride and Prejudice.” Next February, a conventional mystique with horror fringe, titled “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies,” will be released.

Soon, another Jane Austen’s adaptation “Love and Friendship” will mark Whit Stilman’s return to big screen reuniting him with actors Kate Beckinsale and Chloë Sevigny.
