Natalie Portman to star in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Natalie Portman has signed on to star in and co-produce the upcoming film PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES. The book is based on the novel by the same name and was written by Seth Grahame-Smith and Jane Austen. It is the classic Austen tale with the addition of zombies. In it we will follow Elizabeth Bennet as she fights off the undead but takes a short break when Mr. Darcy rolls into town. No release date is set yet but you can see Natalie Portman in the recently released film BROTHERS.
Even though there has been a serious influx of zombie movies I have to admit that I’m very excited about this film. I love the thought of taking a classic novel and adding blood-thirsty zombies to the mix–I wonder what Ms. Austen would have thought about this?
