Fanny casting not quite there

In response to I like MP; the book and the adaptation, written by Linda on December 26, 1997 at 16:06:29
] That said, I think that they did a very creditable job. The movie stays quite close to the book, which is always important to me.
Linda, you know what? One of the thing I really like about you is that you like most things!
I didn't mind the BBC version so much. I'm glad it was made and that I got to "see" Austen. That's always a treat for me no matter what.
I was disappointed in the Fanny they chose. I thought she should be more diminunative. Fanny's supposed to be little and frail. Somebody like Sam Morton would have been good (like, not her; she'd have been a little girl when it was made.)
Somebody on the VirtView board some months ago mentioned she'd met Maggie Wadey who's adapting the new version, but I can't recall the details about length or who's producing or much of anything.
She wrote the NA script, and something else we've seen recently. Was it Mill on the Floss?
