After years in development and endless problems, Pride & Prejudice & Zombies is finally heading towards production, and the cast just got a bit prettier as Douglas Booth and Emma Greenwell have signed on to star, according to Variety and Deadline.
Lily James, Sam Riley Bella Heathcote and Jack Huston are already onboard for the film. It’s based on Grahame-Smith’s novel, which keeps much of Jane Austen’s original Pride & Prejudice, but adds in a zombie apocalypse to give the classic love story an extra bit of zing.
Lily James will be Elizabeth Bennett, with Sam Riley as Mr. Darcy. Noah’s Douglas Booth will be Mr. Bingley, with Shameless star Emma Greenwell as his sister.
Burr Steers is set to direct, with filming due to start later this month.
