Seth Grahame-Smith took a classic novel, Pride and Prejudice, and wrote Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. The book has gathered praise and criticism. Often seen as a parody of the classic novel, it is about to get the big screen treatment. The idea was pitched back in December 2009. It seemed to fade away. It seems the movie is back on track as casting news emerges.
Lily James will be playing Elizabeth Bennet. Sam Riley is cast as Mr. Darcy and Bella Heathcote will be playing one of Elizabeth’s sisters. Burr Steers, who directed 17 Again and Charlie St. Cloud will be directing. The story will revolve around the two unlikely lovers, Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy, meeting during a zombie outbreak. I’ve never read the classic novel, but I’m intrigued by this movie.
