Spirited heroine Elizabeth Bennet is determined to swab out the zombie nuisance, but she’s soon sidetracked by the arrival of the proud and supercilious Mr. Darcy. What results is a wonderful comedy of etiquettes with plenty of cultured sparring between the two juvenile lovers and even more violent hurly-burly on the blood-soaked battleground as Elizabeth launches fierce war against multitudes of flesh-eating zombies. Will she crush the offspring of Satan and overcome the common unfairness of the class-conscious grounded gentry? Filled entirely with romantic saga, catastrophe, swordfights, cannibalism, and thousands of putrid carcasses, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies converts a masterwork of world literature into something you would really desire to read.” Let us also add that director Mike White is set to helm the film, replacing original director David O. Russell. Natalie Portman was originally set to produce and star in the project but there is no word on her current status with the project.
