Thesps to join ‘Jane Eyre’

Wasikowska, Fassbender eye Fukunaga adaptation

Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender are in negotiations to star in “Sin nombre” helmer Cary Fukunaga’s feature adaptation of Charlotte Bronte’s classic novel “Jane Eyre.”

Brit shingle Ruby Films’ Alison Owen and Paul Trijbits are producing with BBC Films and Focus Features from a script by Moira Buffini.

Project is a period piece but will play up the gothic elements of the story about Jane (Wasikowska), a demure governess who discovers her surly employer Rochester (Fassbender) is harboring a dark secret. The book has been the subject of numerous previous adaptations.

Wasikowska will next be seen as Alice alongside Johnny Depp in Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland,” which Disney is releasing next year.
