Sienna Miller, Chloë Sevigny Join Stillman’s Love and Friendship

Sienna Miller attends the British Fashion Awards 2013 at London Coliseum on December 2, 2013 in London, England.

So yes, in addition to the novel that Stillman announced last week, he is also continuing with the film adaptation of an early Jane Austen work — though the movie appears to be an adaptation of Lady Susan, her second novella, even though it takes its name from the first. Anyway: Miller will play the aforementioned Lady Susan, who’s trying to find a husband and marry off her daughter; Sevigny will play a “close friend" and partner in scheming. Filming starts this summer.
