On August 13, 2013, the Apple Store in Manhattan hosted one of their “Meet The Filmmaker” series events featuring some of the cast and crew of the upcoming film “Austenland.” If these pix whet your appetite of what transpired, you can download a podcast of the event on i-Tunes for free! The event featured leading lady Keri Russell, director Jerusha Hess, producer Stephenie Meyer (who wrote “Twilight”) and actor JJ Feild.
The film focuses on a die-hard Jane Austen fan who goes on a retreat to a Jane Austen theme park. From there drama, comedy and possibly love ensue. Though I am not a huge fan of Jane Austen myself, the concept of the movie sounds pretty cool. I guess the world can judge its execution when the film is released theatrically.
After the event, I met Keri Russell, JJ Feild, Jerusha Hess and Stephenie Meyer and they were all nice enough to take photos. Thanks everyone and best of luck with Austenland!
