Best Movie News Of The Year

December 11th, 2009at 04:37pm Posted by Eli

Not so much the casting (although I like Natalie Portman) as the fact that this movie is getting made at all:

Portman will star in and produce “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies,” a film that is based on the bestselling book written by Seth Grahame-Smith and Austen. Lionsgate will finance and distribute. Quirk Books published the tome.

(…)

Described as an expanded version of the Austen classic, the book tells the timeless story of a woman’s quest for love and independence amid the outbreak of a deadly virus that turns the undead into vicious killers.

Portman will play feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet, who is distracted from her quest to eradicate the zombie menace by the arrival of the arrogant Mr. Darcy.

Awesome.  Now if someone will just make “Zombies On A Plane”, I can die happy.  And then get reanimated on a plane and start eating people.
