A new adaptation of Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre will hit theaters in March 2011. The official trailer is embedded above–what do you think?

Moira Buffini wrote the screenplay and Cary Fukunaga directed. Actress Mia Wasikowska played Jane while co-star Michael Fassbender acts as her love interest, Edward Rochester.

In 2009, Wasikowska starred in Alice in Wonderland. Fassbender will play the comic book villain, Magneto, in X-Men: First Class next year. Rumor has it Fassbender will also play a part in the upcoming Hobbit movies.

Bronte first published Jane Eyre in October 1847 under the male pseudonym, Currer Bell. The storyline features a highly romantic drama between a governess and the wealthy man who employs her.
