Ahead of July 11’s San Diego Comic-Con, Screen Gems has released a series of photos from the long awaited movie ‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’ via Entertainment Weekly. The movie was both written and directed by Burr Steers, based on the novel by Seth Grahame-Smith and Jane Austin. ‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’ stars Jack Huston, Lily James, Bella Heathcote , Charles Dance, Lena Heady, Douglas Booth and ‘Dr. Who’ actor Matt Smith.
In the fashion of Jane Austin’s classic tale a zombie outbreak has plagued the area. Relationships, made complex by the difference of their social classes in 19th century England, are put to the test as the undead rise.
Lily James, who plays the role of the movie’s heroine Elizabeth Bennet, has made the comment “Rather than knitting and crocheting, they’re polishing muskets.” and that Elizabeth is “the most badass zombie slayer there is.” Unlike in the 2005 ‘Pride and Prejudice’, this movie is full of action, zombies and ass kicking.
‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’ will debut in theaters on February 5, 2016.
