In Shannon Hale's latest blog (here if you're interested) she does a bit of a Q & A. A few interesting tidbits:
"Is the movie similar to the book?"
It is very similar to the book. There are changes, of course....I feel great about the changes. Nothing majorly important to me in the book was cut out of the screenplay, and we added lots of bits that I'm very happy with. I hope you will be too!
Hopefully the shirtless Martin scene and the scene LauraK aptly named "the holding-her-against-the-door-whilst-her-legs-are-wrapped-around-him scene" are included in those scenes dubbed 'majorly important' to SH.
End of week 5 on the Austenland movie set. I can scarcely believe it. 7 weeks seemed so long. Now that I've gotten over the hump, I feel as if there is barely any time left. Some of the regular cast members only work 2 days this week and then wrap.
I really hope a set photo of Bret surfaces before it's all over. It's been immensely gratifying to get so much info from the actors and the writer. Gotta love Twitter.
