It will be directed by Will Clark.
Co-producer David Furnish comments:
It felt like a fresh and funny way to blow apart the done-to-death Jane Austen genre by literally dropping this alien into the middle of a costume drama, where he stalks and slashes to horrific effect.Is this for real? Well, why not? As surprising as it seems, stranger things have happened. Is it a comedy? I guess we'll find out sooner or later.
