Who is about to become the ultimate zombie and ninja fighter?? LILY COLLINS IS!!!!
And we're already looking forward to it!!
This blossoming beauty has recently been confirmed as the female lead in the film adaptation of the popular novel, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. She will be playing Elizabeth Bennet, zombie-killer.
In case you're not entirely sure why you should be looking forward to this, here's a brief run-down of the book: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies takes a classic tale, Pride and Prejudice, and adds more innnneresting elements. These elements may or may not include zombies, ninjas, and other such critters. Cool, right!??!
Seriously awesome. Lily Collins was a brilliant Snow White in Mirror Mirror, so we can only imagine she will make a GREAT Elizabeth.

We haven't heard anything about the film adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies for quite some time, but now it looks like wheels are moving again!
We've just learned that Fright Night writing/directing team Marti Noxon and Craig Gillespie will be teaming up once again for Zombies.
The Fighter director David O. Russell wrote the script before leaving the project, and now Noxon will rework it before they move forward with production.
For those of you who haven't read the book, the story "retells Jane Austen’s classic tale about the romance between the independent Elizabeth Bennet and the snooty Mr. Darcy"…but there are zombies involved.
Sounds like it'll be a while before this movie actually starts production, but we'll keep our eyes peeled! Should def be a fun flick!
Are U excited to hear that wheels are moving once again on Pride and Prejudice and Zombies?
