Anyone ever read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Seth Graham-Smith? As a huge fan of Jane Austen, and specifically Pride and Prejudice I was always kind of intrigued by this “re-imagining” of Elizabeth Bennett’s regency England backdrop with ZOMBIES (yes, that’s right, Mr. Darcy and THE UNDEAD.) Last week news broke that Natalie Portman signed on to star and produce a film version of the book and today David O Russo was attached to direct. I think this could be good. While Kiera Knightly was perfectly cast as Elizabeth Bennett in the most recent Pride and Prejudice I can also see Natalie Portman making a spirited E.B.
