New Jane Eyre to Borrow P&P Fog Machine

The U.K.'s Independent gives some reasons why we should have our knickers in a bunch about the new Jane Eyre adaptation (other than the fact that it's a new Jane Eyre adaptation). I'll summarize for you:

*It's being filmed at "the most perfect house to survive from the Middle Ages."

*In his first scene Toby Stephens as Mr. Rochester "emerges out of a thick mist on his trusty steed, which rears up and bucks its esteemed rider at the sight of Jane on the moors."

*The journalist thinks 37 year-old actor Toby Stephens (Twelfth Night, Die Another Day) could have "the Colin Firth affect." Frankly, that's reason enough for me. --Kim
