Dakota Johnson & Henry Golding to Co-Star in Jane Austen Adaptation 'Persuasion'!

Dakota Johnson and Henry Golding are about to be co-stars!

The script was co-penned by Ron Bass and Alice Victoria Winslow.

Here’s a plot summary, via Deadline: “Anne Elliot is an unconforming woman with modern sensibilities, living with her snobby family who are on the brink of bankruptcy. When Frederick Wentworth—the dashing one she once sent away—crashes back into her life, Anne must choose between putting the past behind her or listening to her heart when it comes to second chances.”

Henry Golding will play Mr. Elliot in the film, opposite Dakota Johnson’s Anne Elliot.

According to the report, Henry was attracted to the role because of the opportunity to play “against type,” as Mr. Elliot is the “callous and classic Austen foil.”

Carrie Cracknell will make her feature directorial debut with the film.

It was recently revealed that Dakota Johnson and beau Chris Martin have moved in together. Check out the pics of their stunning, new home!
