Watch the first trailer for the horror film ‘The Curse of Downers Grove’, co-written by Bret Easton Ellis

22 July 2015 7:15 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Through numerous adaptations of his work, such as Less Than Zero, American Psycho, and The Rules of Attraction, novelist Bret Easton Ellis has become a familiar name to film fans over the years. In 2008, however, the novelist stepped into the film realm himself, co-adapting his book The Informers for the big screen. He followed it up with an original screenplay in 2013 for The Canyons, and his next foray into features will see him adapt another person’s novel.

Titled The Curse of Downers Grove, the screenplay is adapted from the Michael Hornburg novel Downers Grove. Ellis co-wrote the screenplay with Derick Martini, and the latter takes the directing reins for the feature, whose synopsis can be read below.

A teen angst thriller at a high school gripped by an apparent curse that claims the life of a senior every year. Story follows a senior, Chrissie, who is skeptical, and another, »

22 July 2015 2:04 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

"The Curse of Downers Grove" is an interesting twist in the career of young indie filmmaker Derick Martini. He came to acclaim with the family drama "Lymelife" with Alec BaldwinRory Culkin, and Emma Roberts. Martin Scorsese liked it so much he served as an executive producer. His follow-up “Hick,” with Chloe Moretz, Blake Lively and Eddie Redmayne -- a pretty notable cast -- ended up on many of year-end worst lists in 2011. Now Martini’s back with the teen horror “The Curse of Downers Grove.” Written by Bret Easton Ellis, the movie stars Bella Heathcote (“Dark Shadows”), “X-Men” actor Lucas Till, Kevin Zegers, Penelope Mitchell, Zane Holtz, Helen Slater, and Tom Arnold. Here’s the official synopsis: The town of Downers Grove looks like your average suburban neighborhood —but Downers Grove has a disturbing secret....

Comic-Con 2015 Interviews: Lily James, Matt Smith & More Talk Pride And Prejudice And Zombies

16 July 2015 3:51 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

On February 5th, manners will meet the macabre in Screen GemsPride and Prejudice and Zombies, the upcoming film adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's novel of the same name. At Comic-Con last week, Daily Dead participated in roundtable interviews with the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies director and cast, who discussed the film's physicality, investable characters, formidable zombies, and much more.

Writer/director Burr Steers on his vision for the film:

Burr Steers: It was actually something I knew was out there because a lot of people had taken shots at trying to get it made. I looked at it and had a take on it that I was really confident would work. I went in there and rewrote it, and made it happen.

I saw it in my mind the way you'd approach a play. We'd set up this alternate world where there's a zombie pandemic that »

Watch: Pride And Prejudice And Zombie Cast Plays “Would You Rather”

14 July 2015 9:36 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I’ve been working on a brand new game to add to the rotation and got the opportunity to give it a go last week at San Diego Comic-Con. Welcome to the very first edition of Collider’s movie-themed “Would You Rather!” The goal is to have some fun, but a top priority of the game is also to give a little insight into how a filmmaker likes to work, his or her on-set preferences, etc. Shortly after the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Hall H panel, I got the opportunity to sit down with Matt Smith who plays Mr. Collins and Jack Huston who plays Wickham. Lily James leads the adaptation of the Seth Grahame-Smith book as Elizabeth Bennet. She’s basically the same Elizabeth Bennet featured in the original Jane Austen novel except for the fact that she and her four sisters, Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Mary (Millie Brady »

'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies' Comic-Con Interviews

12 July 2015 1:39 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

One movie we've heard very little about at Comic-Con is Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. The Jane Austen horror mashup did have a panel in Hall H midday, but the Seth Grahame-Smith adaptation was outshined by heavy hitters such as Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Deadpool, Suicide Squad and X-Men: Apocalypse. We're not sure what was shown, but no new trailer appeared in any official capacity to share. We're not empty handed, though. We did get get 6 interviews with the cast, including Lily James, Sam Riley, Bella Heathcote, Jack Huston, Douglas Booth and Matt Smith.

Earlier in the week, before Pride and Prejudice and Zombies could turn Hall H into a 19th Century blood bath, EW released 4 very sexy, very gory photos from the thriller. They proved that this generation was about to get a Jane Austen interpretation like non-other before it, with Seth Grahame-Smith's tome hitting the »

Comic-Con 2015: Pride And Prejudice And Zombies Panel Report

11 July 2015 3:05 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Of all the literary/horror mash-ups you can think of - Moby Dicknado, War And Peace And Piranhas, Lord Of The Flyblown - Pride And Prejudice And Zombies is the one that’s actually happening. That it’s an even more far-fetched conceit than anything you could possibly invent is a joy that was not lost on the Hall H throng. Comic-Con came to have its minds (and English text books) blown and the film’s cast and filmmakers did their best to oblige in a panel that showcased a chunky first trailer.In attendence were writer/ director Burr Steers, cast members Lily James (Elizabeth Bennet), Sam Riley (Mr. Riley), Bella Heathcote (Jane Bennet), Douglas Booth (Mr. Bingley), Jack Huston (Mr. Wickham) and Matt Smith (Mr. Collins), and the masher-upper-in-chief Seth Grahame-Smith.The movie’s set up is simple: after seven decades of zombies roaming 19th century England, cluttering up »

Sex Sells in Corseted New 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies' Pictures

4 July 2015 12:28 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

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 »

'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies' First Look: Do we even care anymore?

3 July 2015 9:46 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

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 »

New Pride And Prejudice And Zombies Images Prepare for Proper Slaying

3 July 2015 9:20 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

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.

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."

Lily James, Sam Riley, Bella Heathcote, Douglas Booth, Jack Huston and Matt Smith str in the film which opens February 19th next year.
