Portlandia’s Carrie Brownstein to Finish One of Nora Ephron’s Last Scripts

Portlandia's Carrie Brownstein to Finish One of Nora Ephron's Last Scripts

Carrie Brownstein has been tapped to posthumously complete one of Nora Ephron’s last projects, a big-screen adaptation of the British miniseries Lost in Austen.

The proposed film, which centers on a modern woman who suddenly finds herself inside Pride and Prejudice, will be Brownstein’s first screenplay. The Portlandia co-creator and star’s version will make its protagonist a Brooklynite. (Insert DIY canning joke here.) 

In addition to her Zeitgeisty sketch-comedy show, Brown will next appear in Jill Soloway’s Amazon series Transparent and Todd Haynes’ feature Carol.
