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.
