Oh! We've been waiting to hear when this one was moving forward!

Although it was announced almost a year ago, it appears that the film adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's Pride & Prejudice & Zombies is finally in the works, with director Mike White stepping in to fill David O. Russell's place!

Unfortunately, Natalie Portman has also abandoned the lead role, but will continue as a producer with her partner, Anne Savich!

Inneresting! We're curious to see who will step in as Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Darcy!

Sounds like this could have a lot of potential!

What do U think?? Are U excited for Pride & Prejudice & Zombies??

    Yes! Can't wait for it!

    It's a disgusting disgrace to Jane Austen. The fact that that fucking douchebag got rich off her novel and then has the audacity to get rich off a movie is so shameful. He has no artistic integrity or originality of his own.

    I am not looking forward for this at all! I don't mean to be a debbie downer but Pride & Prejudice & Zombies in my opinion made a mockery of Jane Austen's classic novel Pride and Prejudice!

    I really love the book and am definitely looking forward to the movie. To each his own if they don't like the retelling. While Pride and Prejudice is a romance with a strong female lead, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is a romance with a strong female lead killing the fuck outta some zombies! Don't take it so serious. Geez!

    Love Pride & Prejudice, pretty much hate Pride & Prejudice & Zombies but I wouldn't mind watching the flick!

    Not excited, the book was terrible. It was a novel idea, and possibly could have done well, but it was the most horrible bit of writing I've read in a while. The movie might be worth watching if it has very little to do with the book.

    Oh yea! I cannot wait. I hope casting goes off well. Natalie Portman would have been cool but I hope they find someone else to the acting level she would have brought and please for the love of god…NO SCARLETT JOHANSSON!
