Screen Gems Buys ‘Pride And Prejudice And Zombies,’ Pic Adds ‘Game Of Thrones’ Stars

23 September 2014 4:32 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Two major developments on Pride And Prejudice And Zombies, the Burr Steers film that mixes the mannered, brain-challenging prose of Jane Austen with brain-eating corpses from hell.

Screen Gems has closed a deal for U.S. distribution rights, and Game Of ThronesCharles Dance and Lena Headey have joined the cast. The film stars Lily James, 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. Latest script is by Steers.

The picture has been put together by Cross Creek’s Brian Oliver, »

Nikki Reed Will Open A Haunted Email In New Horror Flick

30 January 2014 8:30 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Twilight Saga may have been a shamefully terrible chapter in teen-targeted cinema, but the series did act as a launch-pad for multiple actors and actresses, most notably Ashley Greene and Nikki Reed. Greene has demonstrated considerable acting talent in projects like Cbgb and ABC’s short-lived Pan Am, while Reed was one of the best parts of recent action fare like Catch .44 and Empire State. Greene already made her bid to become a Hollywood scream queen with 2012 flop The Apparition, and now, it’s Reed’s chance. The actress has just signed on to topline a Singapore-set horror film called Email, which will start shooting on location in Singapore this May.

Singaporean director Kelvin Tong will helm the flick for Spj Enterprises, a production company also based out of Singapore. Tong previously directed The Maid, which was widely considered to be one of the country’s first horror »
