Your reference to reversing the personality of the main character of a novel led me to consider other reformations of famous novels, like "Captain Ahab, Environmentalist Whaler". You can probably think of many other literary transformations.

Yes, indeed. The Wikipedia article on the film mentions a large number of ways in which the film changed the book:

As far as I know, it was a flop, and given the huge interest in everything to do with Jane Austen, it was a bad mistake, because a film that was even halfway decent, like the Pride and Prejudice film of 2005, would have made loads of money.
