CBC Takes on Anne of Green Gables

1536
This past January, the CBC announced they will be rebooting Lucy Maud Montgomery’s classic Canadian novel Anne of Green Gables. Titled Anne, the new eight episode series will be spearheaded by producer Moira Walley-Beckett. Currently travelling across Canada for open-call auditions for the role of Anne, production is set to start this summer for the 2017 release of the modern reimagining of the classic Canadian tale. “Adapting Anne’s story really excites me,” says Walley-Beckett. “Anne’s issues are contemporary issues: feminism, prejudice, bullying and a desire to belong. The stakes are high and her emotional journey is tumultuous. I’m thrilled to delve deeply into this resonant story, push the boundaries and give it new life.”
