Jane Eyre: the movie

According to ComingSoon.net, Cary Fukunaga is in "advanced negotiations" to direct a film adaptation of Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre. The film, which features a script by Moira Buffini, will "play up the gothic elements of the classic 19th century story about a governess who falls in love with her surly employer who has a dark secret."

One wonders: does the above quote indicate that they're going to make the story as much like Twilight as the book's basic premise will allow, or just chop off (or at least reduce) the bit at the end with Jane's long-lost cousins? We'll have to wait and see, but my money's on a bit of both.
