You can't get more classic than this. Jane Austen's classic novel "Pride and Prejudice" is being updated as a zombie horror book and will eventually be adapted into a feature film, reports the Herald Sun. A parody of the English novel is due to be published in April under the name Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, with Hollywood studios already bidding to turn the new book into a blockbuster movie.
Portman to Topline 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies'?
While Production Weekly reported this evening that Natalie Portman (V for Vendetta) is now attached to Seth Grahame-Smith's novel Pride and Prejudice and Zombies - Jane Austen's novel with bone crunching zombie action - a source at website Shocktillyoudrop is reporting this information is premature. "Premature. No offers or handshakes of any kind yet - other people circling," reports their unnamed source. Austen fans are in for a shock, with heroine Elizabeth Bennet and her four sisters becoming zombie slayers and taught how to fight like Japanese ninjas by Mr Darcy.
Ich bin durchaus angetan von der Idee 😂
