In it, Jane (Keri Russell) finds herself in trouble with the administration at the Jane Austen theme park because she's got an "unmentionable" - that is, a cell phone, which is highly forbidden presumably because it detracts from the time-specific ambiance of the place.
As her first production project of a movie not based on her own material, Meyer has said that the set of Austenland was much more peaceful and relaxing than her prior film projects. Because of that experience, her company Fickle Fish Films has now acquired two other books - Lois Duncan's Down A Dark Hall and Kendare Blake's Anna Dressed In Blood - to adapt next.
"Writing for me is a lot more fulfilling that producing," Meyer said of her continued Hollywood work. "But with producing, you get an opportunity and you don’t want to let it go by. You see it in your head and your really want to make it real. So for me, right now, it is still an indulgence to be able to step aside from my writing and have fun producing for a while."
Austenland recently debuted at Sundance Film Festival and was picked up for North American distribution by Sony Pictures.
