Natalie Portman, Zombie Slayer

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. We all know the drill... Seth Grahame-Smith added zombies to the Jane Austen novel. I still can't bring myself to read it but reviews I've seen are split down the middle. I posted earlier about the news of turning this book into a television mini series. Now the latest news (or latest news about a week or two ago, sorry) is that Lionsgate gave the thumbs up to turn the story into a movie. Oh yeah, and Natalie Portman is going to star in and produce the film.

"The original text of Jane Austen's beloved novel with all-new scenes of bone-crunching zombie action. As our story opens, a mysterious plague has fallen upon the quiet English village of Meryton—and the dead are returning to life! Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet is determined to wipe out the zombie menace, but she's soon distracted by the arrival of the haughty and arrogant Mr. Darcy. What ensues is a delightful comedy of manners with plenty of civilized sparring between the two young lovers—and even more violent sparring on the blood-soaked battlefield as Elizabeth wages war against hordes of flesh-eating undead."


  1. I really enjoyed the book. Heck of a lot better than the original.

  2. This is going to be Awesome!!!!

  3. I loved this book, I can only envision Keira Knightly in the lead though, since she already potrayed Ms. Bennett.
