In the film, “the heroine, Liz Bennett (James), is pressured by her family to marry into a wealthy upper-class home but chafes at the stiff social mores of Victorian England. Instead, she feels that she should help defend the countryside against the onslaught of a horrifying zombie plague.”

Rose Byrne helps launch all female production company

21 April 2015 5:28 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Three features in advanced development at new all female company.

Five Australian women, including actress Rose Byrne and The Last Impresario director Gracie Otto, have formed production company The Dollhouse Collective.

“The core aim is to develop theatre, film and television together and tell stories with a strong female presence,” Otto told ScreenDaily. “This formalizes what we are already doing. Sitting around the dinner table we have always been sounding boards for each other.”

Another partner is Shannon Murphy, best known in theatre and opera circles but who has directed short films and is developing feature When All The Water.

Also on board are publicist and emerging producer Jessica Carrera and actress Krew Boylan, who recently received development support from Screen Australia for the feature Seriously Red, produced by Matt Reeder and featuring a protagonist obsessed with Dolly Parton.

“It’s a mystery, a puzzle film, that unravels through time zones and hotels,” said Otto of »

Alessandro Nivola Boards Nicolas Winding Refn’s The Neon Demon

15 April 2015 3:30 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With every new casting announcement on Nicolas Winding Refn’s The Neon Demon, we learn a little more of its deranged premise. A horror set in the fashion world, its early descriptions lend it an edge of Lynch via way of Cronenberg. In short, it’s setting itself up to be a visual delight that will shake your morals loose at the same time.

Refn has himself described it as a “horror film about vicious beauty” and reports from various outlets indicate that it’s set to focus on “a group of supermodels going to extremes in their attempts to keep looking the way they do,” which will include the use of “voodoo and cannibalism.” Needless to say, The Neon Demon won’t receive a PG-13 rating based on those cultish activities its starry cast will likely get mixed up in. That ensemble so far includes Elle Fanning, Christina Hendricks, »

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has had a release date set of February 19, 2016.

The film, which is based on the 2009 parody novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, will see Jane Austen's classic reimagined as a horror story.

Elizabeth's sisters will be played by Bella Heathcote (Jane), Ellie Bamber (Lydia), Millie Brady (Mary) and Suki Waterhouse (Kitty).

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies will hit theaters on February 19, 2016, going up against the EuropaCorp thriller Shut In.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies to Hit Theaters on February 19th, 2016

31 March 2015 12:11 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Like the living dead that roam the 19th-century English countryside of its story, the movie adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has refused to die, shambling on through multiple director and lead actor changes over the past several years to finally begin filming last September. Now we know when to expect to see the living dead of Meryton, as an official release date for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has now been set for early next year.

According to Box Office Mojo, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies will hit theaters on February 19th, 2016, from Sony/Screen Gems.

In the film, “the heroine, Liz Bennett (James), is pressured by her family to marry into a wealthy upper-class home but chafes at the stiff social mores of Victorian England. Instead, she feels that she should help defend the countryside against the onslaught of a horrifying zombie plague.”

Pride And Prejudice And Zombies Will Munch Moviegoers’ Brains Next February

31 March 2015 11:14 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

At long last, a big-screen adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith’s gleefully silly Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, a supernatural send-up of the Jane Austen classic, is happening. Today, Screen Gems announced that the Burr Steers-directed horror-comedy will hit screens on February 19th, 2016.

The pic will follow Victorian lady Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James, of Cinderella fame) and her sisters Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Mary (Millie Brady), Jane (Bella Heathcote) and Kitty (Suki Waterhouse), whose attempts to combat the everyday pressures of life in their class-conscious society are complicated by the presence of cranium-craving zombies.

Lena Headey, Charles Dance, Matt Smith, Douglas Booth, Jack Huston and Sam Riley make up the stacked supporting cast.

As it stands, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is only contending with thriller Shut In in its weekend, though it’s opening one week after heavy hitters Deadpool and Zoolander 2 (plus whatever Nicholas Sparks trifle 20th Century »

Pride And Prejudice And Zombies Set for February 19, 2016

31 March 2015 9:29 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

After years of languishing in development hell, I’m still surprised that Pride and Prejudice and Zombies actually got made, let alone that it’s coming to theaters. Screen Gems has announced Burr Steers’ horror-comedy, based on the parody novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, will finally open on February 19, 2016. 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. I’m surprised the studio didn’t move the film up a week and get in that Valentine’s Day crowd.  Of course, that would put it against the heavy competition of Deadpool and Zoolander 2. Currently, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is only sharing its weekend with the thriller Shut In. The film also stars Lena Headey, Charles Dance, Matt Smith, »

'Pride & Prejudice & Zombies' Lands February 2016 Release Date

31 March 2015 8:46 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Briefly: Last fall brought us our first look at the long-gestating adaptation of Pride & Prejudice & Zombies, based on Seth Grahame-Smith's period romance novel remix of the same name. In the story, a zombie apocalypse has been ongoing for 70 years, and the Bennet sisters, Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Jane (Bella Heathcote), Elizabeth (Lily James), Mary (Millie Brady), and Kitty (Suki Waterhouse) are finally sick of it and ready to take on the undead. Now the film from Burr Steers (17 Again) has been given a release date of February 19th, 2016 from Screen Gems. It's not the best release date, but not entirely unexpected. Sam Riley and Jack Huston also star in the film, and we'll see if people show up next year. »

30 March 2015 1:22 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Hugh Grant returned to screens earlier this year in the low-key, amiable rom-com "The Rewrite." The movie reteamed him writer/director Marc Lawrence ("Two Weeks Notice," "Music And Lyrics," "Did You Hear About The Morgans?") for their fourth movie together, and results were a breezy charmer. If you missed the film, or are a fan, today we've got a special prize. But first, here's what the movie is about... Co-starring Marisa Tomei, Allison Janney, J.K. Simmons, Bella Heathcote, and Chris Elliott, the movie follows Keith Michaels, an Award-winning Hollywood screenwriter, who has hit a personal and professional rut.

Nicolas Winding Refn’s The Neon Demon Starts Shooting; Gets a New Synopsis

30 March 2015 10:32 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I love Nicolas Winding Refn (Pusher, Drive, Only God Forgives) and, given the amount of neon he's been putting in his movies recently, I can't wait to check out the color palette on his female driven horror movie, The Neon Demon. That film started shooting today in Los Angeles and is definitely one of my most anticipated pictures of 2016. And now we know a little bit more about the plot, which certainly sounds more incident driven than the gorgeous Only God Forgives.
