Seth Grahame-Smith had a hit on his hands with his take on Pride And Prejudice, he added zombies to the mix and the story was a smash hit. The film adaptation of Pride And Prejudice And Zombies has been in movie limbo for a few years and slowly we received word about it getting closer to starting production. More on this below.
This is what we have learned so far.The cast is slowly coming together and production is set to begin in the next few months. There is no tentative start date but we figure with all the hype around the film, the show should be on the road soon.
Burr Steers is still set to direct, and The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones‘ Lily Collins (pictured) will star. David O. Russell penned the screenplay.
Darko Entertainment, Natalie Portman’s Handsomecharlie Films, and producer Allison Shearmur are already on board the project, which was originally set up at Lionsgate.
If you haven’t read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies it centers on Elizabeth Bennet’s quest for love and independence amid the outbreak of a virus that turns the dead into zombies. The story’s set in an alternate version of 19th Century England that features deadly ancestors roaming the countryside.
More on this as it comes.
