Variety reports that Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender are in talks to star in director Cary Fukunaga's (Sin Nombre) adaptation of Charlotte Bronte's revered novel Jane Eyre.

The script was written by Moira Buffini.

This version of Jane Eyre will follow Jane (Wasikowska), "a demure governess who discovers her surly employer Rochester (Fassbender) is harboring a dark secret."
