(Cbr) In a move destined to delight genre fans, Deadline reports that popular "Game of Thrones" actors Charles Dance and Lena Headey will mix it up with the undead — no, not wights — in the film adaptation of "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies." This announcement follows hot on the heels of the casting of "Doctor Who" alum Matt Smith, and (last month) Lily James, Sam Riley and Bella Heathcote. Along with this casting update comes news that Screen Gems has acquired the U.S. distribution rights, following deals already set up with Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions in Latin America, Scandinavia, Eastern Europe and Iceland. Based on Seth Grahame-Smith’s 2009 mashup that introduces the walking dead into the world of the Jane Austen classic, the long-gestating film is written and directed by Burr Steers. »

Give me a brief snapshot of how the parallel storylines work between Rise of an Empire and the first film.
Deborah Snyder: Well this film takes place on the same three days as the battle of Thermopylae — We just get to see a different perspective. We’re not from the Spartan perspective, we’re from the free Greek perspective, and we’re following this leader Themistocles, who is a naval commander.
Zack Snyder: The other thing we get to see that’s different in this film is it jumps forward and backward a little bit, and because it also paints the origins of Xerxes. So you get to see Xerxes’ birth, and what caused him to become the character that you saw in the original film. »

A few days ago we got our first look at Tyrion and Arya on-set of Game of Thrones Season 5 and now we have some more juicy pics for you, this time featuring Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey), Loras Tyrell (Finn Jones) and Tommen Baratheon (Dean Charles Chapman).
Production of this particular unit began a few days ago in the sunny Croatian city of Dubrovnik where the fantasy series has previously filmed many scenes from prior seasons including much of the exterior for Kings Landing.
The scene seems to involve Cersei and Tommen engaged in a riverside conversation. As you can see Cersei is wearing all black as supposed to her regular regal red and golds. Looks like she could be in mourning…
Season 5 will also introduce some new characters called the Sparrows, religious extremists whose job it is to pass judgement on those who have sinned.

Game of Thrones stars Charles Dance and Lena Headey are the two latest actors to join the cast of the big screen adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. They join the previously cast Lily James, Sam Riley, Bella Heathcoate, Jack Huston, Douglas Booth, Matt Smith, and Suki Waterhouse.
The story follows the tangled relationship between lovers from different social classes in 19th-century England, and things become even more overly complicated when there's an outbreak of zombies. The mashup book that the film is based on is absolutely ridiculous, and it should make for a very entertaining flick.

I don’t want to spoil 300, but I think it’s fair to say it had a double-edged ending with the feeling being that there was still hope even if the war was far from over. 300: Rise of an Empire continues the story, but also prequels it and runs alongside it as the focus turns to Greece and the coming together of a nation to take on Xerxes and his Persian forces.
300: Rise of an Empire focuses mainly on Themistocles (Sullivan Stapleton) taking the battle to the Persian Army on the naval battlefield. Battling against Artemisia (Eva Green) Xerxes’ (Rodrigo Santoro) trusted naval leader he must outwit her and the huge forces she has to take on his more meagre offering. »

I adore the HBO program "Game Of Thrones". Something about seeing high quality actors sink their teeth into meaty dialogue really tickles my fancy. You can keep all the blood and guts you want with that show and just give me an hour of Charles Dance and Lena Headey saying very passive aggressive things to one another. Now, we will get the chance to see them outside of King's Landing and on the big screen, as the two have signed on for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, which was just picked up by Screen Gems for U.S. distribution. The film is based on the popular Jane Austen parody by author Seth Grahame-Smith (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter). It follows the story we have all seen countless versions of about Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James) and her love interest Mr. Darcy (Sam Riley). Except this time there is a zombie uprising. The film also stars Matt Smith, »

The horror themed period mash-up based on the book by Seth Grahame-Smith has been picked up for Us distribution by Screen Gems. It's been a long time coming and the projects been through all sorts of development but thankfully with Burr Steers ('Igby Goes Down') at the helm and an impressive cast setup the production should now be moving forward with some gusto. Headey (below) and Dance join Lily James ('Downton Abbey'), Sam Riley, Bella Heathcote ('Dark Shadows'), Jack Huston, Douglas Booth ('Noah') and Matt Smith ('Doctor Who'). »

The Game Of Thrones star – who plays Margaery Tyrell – has signed up to star in Patient Zero, about “an unprecedented global pandemic that causes the evolution of a new species”. Austrian director Stefan Ruzowitzky (Deadfall) will take the hot seat with Mike Le (W.M.D.) writing the script and Vincent Newman (We’re The Millers) producing. Deadline broke the news but no other information regarding Dormer’s character has been released yet.
The early synopsis reads:
“An aggressive form of rabies turns the infected into predators, addicted to violence. An inexplicably gifted human survivor with the ability to speak the new mutant language leads a hunt for Patient Zero and hope for a cure.”
Since her stint on the Game of Thrones, Dormer has appeared in a number of highly successful feature films including Rush, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 & 2 and Captain America: The First Avenger. She has also appeared in Elementary – the U. »

Yesterday, we had the news that Charles Dance and Lena Headey were signing up to feature in the film of Pride And Prejudice And Zombies. Not one to be outdone, one of their Game Of Thrones colleagues, Natalie Dormer, is signing up to a zombie project of her own.
Dormer, who also features in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, is set to join the cast of Patient Zero, a film set in a post-outbreak zombie apocalypse. It tells the story of a man who has the talent of being able to talk to the undead, and in doing so, he looks for a cure for his infected wife.
There must be something in the Westeros water. After “Game of Thrones” stars Lena Headey and Charles Dance joined the cast of the zombie-rific “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies,” their fellow Got’er and child-marrying Natalie Dormer has signed on to front a zombie flick of her own. Dormer will take the lead in Screen Gems’ “Patient Zero,” with Stefan Ruzowitzky set to direct. Per Deadline, the plot of “Patient Zero” goes thusly: Patient Zero focuses on an unprecedented global pandemic that causes the evolution of a new species. An aggressive form of rabies turns the infected into predators, addicted to violence. An inexplicably gifted human survivor with the ability to speak the new mutant language leads a hunt for Patient Zero and hope for a cure. I’m assuming Dormer is that “inexplicably gifted human survivor.” Dormer is on a roll. Besides her continuing machinations in “Game of Thrones, »
It looks like feuding onscreen father and daughter Charles Dance and Lena Headey are heading to Jane Austen land to co-star in the “re-imagining” (to put it mildly) of Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice,” but with a little dose of zombie mayhem to spice things up. Per Deadline, the “Game of Thrones” actors will be battling the undead in “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies,” joining previously cast star Lily James, along with Sam Riley, Bella Heathcoate, Jack Huston, Douglas Booth, Matt Smith, and Suki Waterhouse. Screen Gems seems a strong match for this literary mash-up that begins with the tangled relationship between lovers from different social classes in 19th-century England, and is complicated by a full-on outbreak of zombies. That plot embellishment escaped Austen but was added by Seth Grahame-Smith, and it probably would have propelled me to actually finish Austen’s book had she thought of it in the first place. »
• Twilight: Eclipse star Xavier Samuel has been cast as Adam/The Monster in a new contemporary version of Mary Shelley’s classic Frankenstein. Danny Huston (Magic City) and Carrie-Anne Moss (Vegas) will star as modern-day Victor and Elizabeth Frankenstein, a husband and wife team of eccentric scientists living in Los Angeles who create the creature. Bernard Rose (Candyman) has adapted Shelley’s work for the picture he is directing. [Deadline]

After years of difficult development and a revolving door of directors and cast, Pride And Prejudice And Zombies has suddenly found its shuffling feet and is finally underway. Burr Steers is directing from his own draft of the screenplay, with Matt Smith, Lily James and Sam Riley already cast. Now joining that trio comes a Lannister injection from Game of Thrones. Charles Dance and Lena Headey have both signed on for some adventures with the sorry stricken.If it's passed you by so far, Seth Grahame-Smith's novel was at the vanguard of pastiche literary zom-com mash-ups that briefly crazed in bookshops a few years ago. P&P&Z sees Elizabeth Bennet (James) searching for love and independence as a zombie plague erupts around her and American wildlife inexplicably starts appearing in the Berkshire countryside. It was followed by the likes of Sense And Sensibility And Sea Monsters, and of course, »
Charles Dance and Lena Headey are both joining the production of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. The actors are best known for their roles in Game of Thrones, playing Tywin Lannister and Cersei Lanninter respectively.
The pair join the continuing growing cast of the adaptation of the popular novel which is a retelling of Pride and Prejudice, albeit one that introduces brain eating zombies into the story. Less than a week ago it was announced that Matt Smith of Doctor Who fame had joined the cast as Mr Collins. However there is still no word as to who Charles Dance and Lena Heady will play in the film.
Production is set to start today with Burr Steers directing the flick. The film is set for release sometime in 2015. The film also stars Lily James (Wrath of the Titans), Sam Riley (Maleficent), Bella Heathcote (Dark Shadows), Douglas Booth (Worried About the Boy »

After landing former "Doctor Who" star Matt Smith, the adaptation of Pride & Prejudice & Zombies has picked up two more cast members from a revered fan favorite series. Lena Headey and Charles Dance respectively play Cersei and Tywin Lannister on the hit HBO series "Game of Thrones" and now they've both landed roles in the film that adds zombies into Jane Austen's classic period romance novel. Burr Steers is directing the film with Lily James in the lead as Liz Bennett, who has her socially forbidden love affair unfolding in 19th century England made a bit more complicated by a full-on outbreak of zombies. Read on! Unfortunately, Deadline's report doesn't indicate which characters Headey and Dance will be playing.

The big-screen adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has been through a lot. David O. Russell was originally set to direct, but he dropped out and Mike White stepped in. Then Craig Gillespie took over, and now Burr Steers is behind the camera. That's just the beginning the musical chairs. The cast has been the subject of rumors and shifts since the project was first announced in 2009. With the latest addition of Game of Thrones' Lena Headey and Charles Dance to the movie, we're sorting out who's actually involved and who has passed on Pride. »
The Lannister clan has plenty to worry about already on HBO’s Game of Thrones, but now two of them are about to face a threat possibly even greater than Daenerys’ dragons or Melisandre’s shadow monsters: Regency-era zombies.
