A First Look at ‘Pride, Prejudice and Zombies’

Photos for the upcoming book to film adaptation of Pride, Prejudice and Zombies have surfaced thanks to Entertainment Weekly!

Being honest here, I haven’t read this book (but I did read Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and enjoyed it) but this movie right up my alley. I am a huge fan of 19th-century clothing and the imagery already reminds me of Sofia Coppola’s ‘Marie Antoinette‘.

The film is directed by Burr Steers who has chosen to stay focused on the Austen portion of the story vs having a “B-movie horror advising his cast not to mine the material for laughs”

“The idea was that it was Pride and Prejudice set in this alternate world and then for everyone to play it straight,” Steers explains. “The movie’s big wink is that there is no big wink.” That news may come as a shock to fans of the over-the-top Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, the last Grahame-Smith book to get a big-screen adaptation. So brace yourselves, James says. “It’s definitely not camp.” (x)

Based on Seth Grahame-Smith’s best-selling mash-up novel, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies recounts the unlikely romance between Lizzy (Lily James) and the haughty Mr. Darcy (Sam Riley), but the courtship takes place in a 19th-century English countryside where the “sorry stricken”—as the zombies are called in the book—have been roaming for more than 70 years, victims of a mysterious plague.
