Ellen Page as Jane Eyre

Variety is reporting,

"Ellen Page is set to play one of English literature's most famous characters, the eponymous heroine of Charlotte Bronte's "Jane Eyre."

Alison Owen of Ruby Films, who most recently produced "The Other Boleyn Girl," is working with BBC Films to develop the new adaptation of Bronte's classic 19th century romance. It's the story of a mousy governess who softens the heart of her surly employer Mr. Rochester, only to discover that he's hiding a terrible secret."

I was a little disappointed when Page bailed on Sam Raimi's return to the horror genre with Drag Me To Hell. Then she took on Drew Barrymore's directorial debut Whip It! which is a curious decision in the first place. And now, BBC Jane Eyre??? I'm a little confused with some of her decisions recently. I'm not super familiar with the story, but I know it slightly. I'm not saying she is a bad choice's just that with news like this I am left a little confused.
