Dakota Johnson has had nothing but works in recent months, even amid restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The latest update came this week when his presence was confirmed in the new Netflix movie, “Persuasion”, based on the novel by Jane Austen and that will begin shooting very soon: this will be his role.
” Persuasion ” was published posthumously in 1818, just a few months after Jane Austen died at age 41. According to local press reports, Dakota Johnson will play Anne, who was in love with a Navy officer who, due to his low social status, is not accepted by the young woman’s family.
Anne’s father is shaping up to be a good man but still concerned with appearances and what people have to say. So together with Anne’s sisters and her insistent aunt Lady Russell, they convince the girl to refuse the love of her lover, but over the years he returns changed, so there would be no problems in resuming the romance.
For this film Netflix proposes a “modern and contemporary” version of Jane Austen’s work: “Living with her snobbish family, which is on the verge of bankruptcy, Anne Elliot is a non-conformist woman with modern sensibilities. When Frederick Wentworth, the handsome man she once rejected, returns to her life, Anne must choose between leaving the past behind or listening to her heart when it comes to giving second chances.”
“Persuasion” was adapted for the screen by Ron Bass and Alice Victoria Winslow. While Andrew Lazar and Christina Weiss Lurie are producing it and the film will be reproduced by Elizabeth Cantillon through her untitled label MRC Film Romance, Michael Constable, David Fliegel. They are all the details that are had of the production that puts Dakota Johnson again in the main role.
