    Anya Taylor-Joy, the star of Split and The Witch, has been cast in the title role for Emma, Working Title’s adaptation of the Jane Austen novel. Music video director Autumn de Wilde is making her feature directorial debut on the feature, which has a script by Man Booker Prize winner Eleanor Catton. Austen’s novel, published in 1815, was a comedy of manners and told of a young woman, Emma Woodhouse, who, despite the best intentions, heedlessly meddles in people’s romantic affairs as she tries to play matchmaker.

    I love Jane Austen novels and Anya so I'm in. I mostly liked the 1996 Emma adaptation due to the talented supporting actors but it could've been perfect if they had cast someone else as Emma and not gwyneth paltrow.
