‘Pride, Prejudice And Zombies’ Movie Adaptation Returns From The Dead
  |  

Just to show you can’t keep a zombie movie of indeterminate quality down, the long-in-development screen adaptation of Pride, Prejudice and Zombies, Seth Grahame-Smith‘s (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) mash-up of Jane Austen‘s beloved 1813 novel that is in the public domain and the zombie horror genre first published to great acclaim and sales four years ago, is back on track for the umpteenth time.

Panorama Media is joining up with Darko Entertainment, Handsomecharlie Films, and producer Allison Shearmur of Allison Shearmur Productions to finally make the Pride, Prejudice and Zombies movie a reality. Oscar-winning actress Natalie Portman, once mooted to play the female lead Elizabeth Bennet, will produce the movie for Darko Entertainment. David O. Russell, the director of Three Kings and The Silver Linings Playbook, is writing the screenplay and at one point was attached to direct. Other directors who have attempted – and failed – to bring Pride to life include Craig Gillespie (Lars and the Real Girl) and Mike White (Year of the Dog).
