Today it was announced that Portlandia’s Carrie Brownstein will be brought on to finish Nora Ephron’s adaptation of the British mini-series Lost in Austen, which the late writer and filmmaker had been developing as a feature film for Columbia Pictures. This will be Brownstein’s first time writing a feature film, which centers on a modern-day Brooklynite who finds herself transported back to the fictional world of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. It is not — as Brownstein’s involvement might portend — a typo of Lost in Austin, which is a premise we hope to see rendered on an upcoming episode of Portlandia.
