Carrie Brownstein + Nora Ephron + Jane Austen = Lost in Austen

Here’s how: Brownstein, of Portlandia, will complete Ephron’s unfinished screenplay for Lost in Austen, a movie based on the British miniseries of the same name. According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Lost in Austen revolves around Amanda, who lives and works in present-day Brooklyn. Suddenly, she finds herself transported back in time and into the fictional world of classic novel Pride and Prejudice.”
