New photos from Pride and Prejudice and Zombies suggest that the forthcoming big-screen adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's novel may not be exactly what we've been anticipating. First published in 2009, Grahame-Smith's book became an unexpected bestseller, thanks in part to the novelty of introducing the undead into the world created by Jane Austen. The writer followed that up with his novel Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, which was made into a broadly comic, self-consciously silly blockbuster in 2012 by Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted). That set audience expectations for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, but a new interview suggests that the filmmakers have something else in mind. As in Austen's classic book, the movie will revolve around Elizabeth Bennett (Lily...

It took a long time for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies to get the green light and I assume that's for a reason. I wasn't as large a detractor when it came to Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter as most (he threw a cow people!), but I have to assume the major selling point behind getting this adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's revisionist novel is the fact not only will Elizabeth Bennet and her sisters be hunting zombies, but they'll be embracing keeping their weapons in some of the most discrete of places. Along with a batch of new pictures from the film, Entertainment Weekly has a quote from star Lily James, who plays Elizabeth Bennet, saying, "Rather than knitting and crocheting, they're polishing muskets... She's the most badass zombie slayer there is." The Bennet sister are trained to fight like ninjas by Mr Darcy (Sam Riley) and the film has »

Sneak Peek new images from director Burr Steers live-action feature adaptation of author Seth Grahame-Smith's 2009 parody novel "Pride And Prejudice And Zombies", that combines Jane Austen's classic 1813 novel "Pride and Prejudice" with elements of modern 'zombie' fiction:
"...'Elizabeth Bennet' and her four sisters live on a countryside estate with their parents. 'Mr. Bennet' guides his daughters in martial arts and weapons training, molding them into a fearsome zombie-fighting army.
"Meanwhile, 'Mrs. Bennet' endeavours to marry the girls off to wealthy suitors. When the wealthy and single 'Mr. Bingley' purchases a nearby house, Mrs. Bennet spies an opportunity and sends the girls to the first ball where Bingley is expected to appear.
"The girls defend the party from a 'zombie' attack, and attraction sparks between Mr. Bingley and the eldest daughter 'Jane Bennet', while Elizabeth clashes with Bingley's friend, the monster-hunter 'Fitzwilliam Darcy'..."

Prior to the epic Pride and Prejudice and Zombies panel planned for Comic Con next Saturday, which promises to turn Hall H into a 19th Century blood bath, EW has released 4 very sexy, very gory photos from the thriller. This generation gets a Jane Austen interpretation like non-other before it, as Seth Grahame-Smith's mash-up novel prepares to hit the big screen just in time for Valentine's Day this February. Here, we get to meet headstrong Elizabeth Bennet and her zombie killing, corset wearing sisters!
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies tells the classic love story with an apocalyptic twist sure to scare anyone into fits of panic, followed by a series of hot flashes. Lily James takes on the role of Lizzy, who has become romantically entangled with Mr. Darcy, played by Sam Riley. This fling is interrupted by a zombie virus, with the 'sorry stricken' (as the walkers are »
The most surprising thing about "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies"? That they actually ended up making it. After losing three directors and at least one major star (Natalie Portman), the adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's bestselling mashup novel is finally headed to the big screen, and EW has the exclusive on the first official images from the film, which director Burr Steers ("Igby Goes Down") says will be played without the tongue-in-cheek tone readers of the book may have been expecting: “The idea was that it was Pride and Prejudice set in this alternate world and then for everyone to play it straight,” Steers told EW. “The movie’s big wink is that there is no big wink.” Added star Lily James ("Cinderella"): “It’s definitely not camp.” You can view the images below. But first, here's a capsule history of the long-in-the-works production: April 2009: Seth Grahame-Smith's »

Screen Gems has released some new Pride and Prejudice and Zombies images. Directed by Burr Steers (Igby Goes Down) and based on the parody novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, the story follows Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James) and her sisters Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Mary (Millie Brady), Jane (Bella Heathcote), and Kitty (Suki Waterhouse) as they try to navigate societal pressures of the landed gentry and fend off hoards of zombies. Speaking to EW, Steers explained how he was approaching the film more as a spin on Jane Austen than a B-movie. “The idea was that it was Pride and Prejudice set in this alternate world and then for everyone to play it straight,” says Steers. “The movie’s big wink is that there is no big wink.” [caption id="attachment_481321" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via Screen Gems[/caption] That’s a difficult line to walk. You don’t want to be stodgy with a ridiculous premise, but at the same time, »

Continuing their pre-Comic Con coverage, EW has posted new photos and details about the upcoming period horror tale "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" which will be getting its own panel in San Diego next weekend.
Based on Seth Grahame-Smith's mash-up novel, the film takes Jane Austen's classic "Pride and Prejudice" and re-imagines it with an apocalyptic twist. The film's director Burr Steers says that despite the premise, the tone here is not camp in the slightest with the action played straight:
"The idea was that it was Pride and Prejudice set in this alternate world and then for everyone to play it straight. The movie's big wink is that there is no big wink."

The latest take on Jane Austen’s classic love story is a little, how should we say… revisionist. In Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, out next February, it is a truth, universally acknowledged, that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains.
Based on the novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, which riffed raucously on Austen’s classic, this new Pride and Prejudice imagines Elizabeth Bennet and her corset-clad sisters as warriors of the Victorian era, searching for husbands while simultaneously fending off hordes of the undead.
“Rather than knitting and crocheting, they’re polishing muskets,” says Lily James, the Cinderella actress who plays Elizabeth, to EW, which debuted the above images. Of Lizzy, James says, “She’s the most badass zombie slayer there is.”
Even more fascinating than the reimagined Elizabeth, though, may be the tone director Burr Steers is aiming to strike. »

With this type of movie you wouldn't expect the material to be taken very seriously, but believe it or not, that's seems to be director Burr Steers (Igby Goes Down) approach. “The idea was that it was 'Pride and Prejudice' set in this alternate world and then for everyone to play it straight," he tells EW. "The movie’s big wink is that there is no big wink." Well, that should be interesting to see at least. Pride And Prejudice And Zombies is an adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's period horror parody, and you can see the five Bennet sisters - Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Jane (Bella Heathcote), Elizabeth (Lily James), Mary (Millie Brady), and Kitty (Sukie Waterhouse) - in action on February 5, 2016. »
The world of Jane Austen is associated with fussy manners and crises of morality and emotion, but in the hands of writer Seth Grahame-Smith, it's the perfect setting for the undead. His wild reimagining "Pride And Prejudice And Zombies" is finally hitting the big screen after years in development, and some bloody new images have arrived.

And her character is “the most badass zombie slayer there is.” However, the most interesting thing about the film might be the approach, which director Burr Steers ("Igby Goes Down") is promising won't be arch. “The idea was that it was 'Pride and Prejudice' set in this alternate »

Céline Dion, who sang "My Heart Will Go On" co-written by Horner for the movie Titanic, said:

Think Hollywood is bereft of original ideas? You just might after this. Here's our look at the assorted movie sequels currently in the works. Since we last did a list like this, we've dropped films that seem to have died a death - Wanted 2, Spring Breakers 2 - but we'll keep this rundown up to date over the coming month.
