We can never get enough of Jane Austen adaptations. The news in today has us hot under the collar. A new adaptation of Pride and Prejudice is in the works, created by Mammoth Screen, the makers of the dark but brilliantly foreboding Poldark.

Playwright Nina Raine is to adapt the classic love story.

“Pride and Prejudice is actually a very adult book, much less bonnet-y than people assume,” Raine explained.

“I hope I do justice to Austen’s dark intelligence – sparkling, yes, but sparkling like granite.”

Mammoth Screen managing director Damien Timmer said : “In this age of the box set – with audiences loving to binge on complex, serialised dramas – it feels absolutely right to reassess the great classics.”

“Every generation needs its own adaptation of this perfect novel.”

We can’t wait to see what Nina has in store for us. No word yet on the cast or when it will go to air.
