TSRn: Jerusha Hess makes directorial debut with 'Austenland' and Stephanie Meyer producing

Thoughts by TSR: Seriously? It's just odd news all around. Jerusha Hess co-wrote Napoleon Dynamite, Nacho Libre and Gentlemen Broncos with her husband, Jared Hess. Directing a film seems like a normal progression, but I'm surprised that it's going to be produced by Meyer. I have no idea how she fits in to the equation. With that being said, the cast looks promising, with Keri Russell, Bret McKenzie and Jennifer Coolidge.
