“Let these exquisite photos of Dakota Johnson, Cosmo Jarvis, and Henry Golding tide you over until PERSUASION, a most excitable new film adaptation of Jane Austen’s novel from director Carrie Cracknell, arrives on Netflix in 2022,” the streaming service wrote.

Johnson stars as Anne Elliot, described in Netflix’s logline as “an unconforming woman with modern sensibilities” who is “living with her snobby family on the brink of bankruptcy”.

“When Frederick Wentworth – the dashing one she once sent away – crashes back into her life, Anne must choose between putting the past behind her or listening to her heart when it comes to second chances,” the logline continues.

According to Variety, Golding will play the cousin of Johnson’s character, Mr Elliot.
