After years in development hell, endless changes in cast and director, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is finally shooting. The film adapts Seth Grahame Smith’s book which took the text of Jane Austen’s classic novel and added in a zombie apocalypse.
It’s for that reason that in the first pic above, which arrived via EW, the Bennet sisters need to ensure they’ve got plenty of blades.
The pic shows Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Jane (Bella Heathcote), Elizabeth (Lily James), Mary (Millie Brady), and Kitty (Suki Waterhouse). They star alongside the likes of Sam Riley as Darcy, Jack Huston as Wickham, Douglas Booth as Bingley, and Matt Smith as Mr. Collins.
Burr Steers is directing with a 2015 release planned.
