Actress Mia Wasikowska is in negotiations to star in a remake of period drama Jane Eyre.

Wasikowska, who will soon grace cinema screens as Alice in Burton’s adaptation of Alice in Wonderland, will swap Tim Burton’s fantasy land for the Victorian era for the project.

The acting newcomer is in talks to join 300 star Michael Fassbender in a new version of the Charlotte Bronte classic, reports Daily Variety.

The last movie adaptation of Jane Eyre was released in 1996, and starred Charlotte Gainsbourg and William Hurt.
