Pride, Prejudice and Zombies set to star Natalie Portman


Natalie Portman has signed on for the movie adaptation of Pride, Prejudice and Zombies, yes you read that right, its just like the original Pride and Prejudice, but with a little more undead flesh eating action thrown in for good measure.

Sounds like quite the idea right, and i think Portman has the chops to handle this adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith’s book, no other news on the casting yet, but as soon as we get some news, we will definitely be covering it. The interesting thing about the book is that it’s truly a mash up in the sense parts of the original are fully intact and Jane Austen is credited as the co author on Pride, Prejudice and Zombies, and was only released in 2009 getting rave reviews from various sources.

Even more interesting is that a sequel/prequel book is already in the works and is set for release in March 2010 so could we have a potential series on our hands here? I guess it’s probably best to wait and see how the first one turns out.
