  • I just read Jane Eyre, by Charlotte Bronte, and it had zero sex. I mean zero. But an adult fiction company, Clandestine Classics, is republishing books like Eyre, Pride And Prejudice and Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea with sexy rewrites. Hey, if Pride can get rewritten with zombies, I don’t see why Jane Eyre can’t get written with Mr. Rochester as a cunning linguist. [ONTD]

Don’t Err And Miss “Jane Eyre”

Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre is one of those stories that gets me every time. So it makes me a little sad that anyone could have missed the Cary Joji Fukunaga’s awesome version of the tale that came out earlier this year. Not so into the classics? Well, I’ll try to woo you on more pop culture terms. It stars Mia Wasikowska—who you remember as Tim Burton’s Alice and the sister from “The Kids Are All Right”—and Michael Fassender, aka Magneto in “X-Men: First Class.” It’s beautifully shot, and almost makes the barren landscape into a character in the story. Really good stuff.

There Were Lots Of Horse Boners On The Set Of “Jane Eyre”

“There was a horse on the third day of filming [when] we were shooting the scene where Jane and Rochester meet, and every time Michael [Fassbender] hopped on the horse it got a huge erection. And he’d get off and they’d run the poor thing around the block to try to make it go away, and he’d hop on it again and it would happen all over again, and they’d have to get him off and run it around.”

—”Jane Eyre” star Mia Wasikowska explains how her co-star Michael Fassbender had an amazing talent for unwittingly giving horses boners. All of the sudden, Charlotte Bronte sounds so cutting edge. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

This “Jane Eyre” Looks Badass


Man, I’m glad I didn’t waste my time in high school reading Jane Eyre because I’m pretty sure the book would have ruined what seems to be an awesome movie! Set to be released in March 2011, the flick based on Charlotte Brontë’s book will star the kick-ass lead from Tim Burton’s “Alice In Wonderland,” Mia Wasikowska and Dame Judi Dench. Best of all, director Cary Fukanaga, who read 24 adaptations of the book (dayum!), feels it isn’t some prissy love story, but a decidedly dark, gothic romance. Suh-weet! Now if only we could get some zombies in there. Oh yeah, and one more thing, I said it once and I’ll say it again, a decade later: “Suck it Mrs. Buckwell, reading is for peeps who don’t have movie theaters!” [The Daily What] Keep reading »
