Are you ready for another Pride and Prejudice movie?

The tale of Elizabeth Bennet’s push-and-pull affections toward Mr. Darcy have been endlessly imitated, adapted, modernized, and satirized. There have been three film adaptations, seven miniseries adaptations, a play, and even a Broadway musical. Now, author Jo Baker’s yet-to-be-released novel, Longbourne, which explores Austen’s story from the point of view of the servants in the Bennet household, has been optioned to be turned into a film by Focus Features and Random House Studio Films.

What do you think about this take on P & P, which some are calling “Pride and Prejudice meets Downton Abbey”?
