do they rewrite a classic to what will sell or appeal to the unknowing masses?

That's exactly what bothers me about recent adaptations. We've had "Pride, Prejudice and Zombies" and "Death Comes to Permberley", but no new P&P movie/tv series after 2005. Same with other JA novels except for Emma. Then came the Bridgertons and I think that is now the new standard: write a modern-ish screenplay, or at least a story the audience can understand and identify with, put everyone in a (somewhat believable) Regency costume, and call it a day.

My issue is not even with this renewed passion for period drama. Let there be more! Just, when someone decides to make a movie based on a novel, they should at least keep the characters in character. Otherwise it's fanfiction, or adaptation of a Harlequin romance, or their own original screenplay - and they shouldn't call it something else.

I feel cheated.
