Maitreyi Ramakrishnan goes from TV star to main girl. After rising to superstardom with By no means Have I Ever, the 19-year-old has booked her first film role with The Netherfield Women. The Netflix movie will probably be a “contemporary and modern” tackle Jane Austen’s Delight and Prejudice and is already being in comparison with iconic literary variations like Emma Stone’s Simple A, which was impressed by The Scarlet Letter, and Julia Stiles’s 10 Issues I Hate About You, which was primarily based on William Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew. Primarily based on that description alone, we’re already on board.
Ramakrishnan is ready to play the movie’s predominant character, Lizzie Bennet, who’s the the protagonist of Austen’s 1813 novel. Becca Gleason can be set to direct from an authentic script she wrote. The movie is not the one Austen remake Netflix has within the works. It is also adapting Persuasion with Dakota Johnson, Henry Golding, and Cosmo Jarvis. From Ramakrishnan’s comedic performing chops to the movie’s intriguing description, the upcoming movie has all of the makings of being this era’s subsequent huge basic literature adaptation.
