Been there

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Keri Russell has signed on to star in the upcoming film adaptation of Shannon Hale's novel Austenland. The movie will be directed by Jerusha Hess (best known for co-writing Napoleon Dynamite with her husband Jared Hess) and produced by Twilight author Stephenie Meyer.

Setting aside the truly ghastly-sounding premise, Hale, Meyer, and Hess are prominent members of the Mormon Church, making me wonder what impact (if any) their faith will have on this project. Didn't someone already make a critically panned Latter-day Saints-themed movie about Pride and Prejudice?
