'Austenland' trailer: Keri Russell hunts for her Mr. Darcy -- VIDEO

Jane Austen fans, rejoice. No longer must you watch countless film adaptations of the author’s work (even though Joe Wright got it … well, right). If you find yourself dreaming of inhabiting Austen’s worlds, then Austenland is the movie for you.

Instead of taking place in the 19th century, Austenland stars Keri Russell as a modern-day singleton looking for love at an Austen-themed resort. Also starring Jennifer Coolidge and Jane Seymour, Austenland hearkens back to the golden age of rom-coms, when the genre was both romantic and comedic.

Check out the trailer for the Sundance hit, and make sure to share your thoughts below:

Backstage at the Tony Awards, award-winning Pippin producers Barry and Fran Weissler announced that one of their next projects would be mounting a musical version of the quirky romantic film. Diane Paulus — who just won a Tony for Best Director for Pippin — will direct, and Paula Vogel, the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright is writing the script. “We’re expecting a really, really great show,” Barry Weissler said.
