The first official trailer for Jerusha Hess’ upcoming romcom-drama Austenland has finally made its way online and it has an added dose of humor, thanks to Jennifer Coolidge.
Starring Keri Russell as a modern-day American woman in her 30s who’d rather live in Jane Austen’s world to the point where she takes a trip to a British resort, the titular Austenland that recreates the atmosphere of the novels.
Hit the jump to take a look at the trailer.
Penned by Jershua Hess and Shannon Hale, Austenland is based on Hale’s original novel about Jane Hayes whose fantasies of meeting the perfect Regency-era gentleman suddenly become realer than she ever could have imagined.
Produced by Twilight author Stephenie Meyer and co-starring Bret McKenzie as the male love interest along with Jane Seymour, Rupert Vansittart and James Callis, the movie opens in limited release on August 16th, 2013.
