Briefly: After so, so many years of development, with just about every director-star combo imaginable, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies finally has a set release date. Screen Gems will put the comedy horror mashup in theaters February 19, 2016, putting it up against the Naomi Watts thriller Shut In.
Based on the hit novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies moves the plot of Jane Austen‘s Pride and Prejudice to an idyllic English countryside littered with the undead. Lily James, Bella Heathcote, Ellie Bamber, Millie Brady, and Suki Waterhouse play the five Bennet sisters. Sam Riley, Douglas Booth, Jack Huston, and Matt Smith are their would-be suitors. Burr Steers directs. [Coming Soon]

Seth Grahame-Smith‘s Pride and Prejudice and Zombies was once such a hot property, bidding for the movie rights began before the book even hit shelves. But it’s spent the past five years in development hell, shuffling from one high-profile movie star and director to another.
The last we heard of it was in May, when the David O. Russell-penned script landed with Burr Steers (Igby Goes Down) and Lily Collins (The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones). Progress has been pretty quiet since then, but the project is apparently far from dead — in fact, it’s nearing the start of production. More details after the jump.

I suppose it’s appropriate that a movie about the undead would itself have trouble staying dead. After years of failed attempts by Lionsgate to bring Seth Grahame-Smith‘s Jane Austen spoof Pride and Prejudice and Zombies to the big screen, the project suddenly sprang back to life this spring when a new backer signed on. And now those folks have managed to get a new star and director on board as well.
Burr Steers has just signed on to direct Lily Collins in the film, which is now going by the title Pride, Prejudice, and Zombies. Because that first “and” was the problem all along, I guess. Hit the jump for more details.

How serious can Zac Efron be? That’s mostly a rhetorical question because, his High School Musical past notwithstanding, the guy indicated in Me and Orson Welles that he might actually be able to bring it. But Charlie St. Cloud might be the real test. This is the movie where Efron’s character has to choose between the hot girl and life of a sailor on one hand, and literally spending time with the ghost of his dead brother on the other.
Actually, I don’t know why I wasted all this time saying anything other than “this movie looks like a Nicholas Sparks version of The Lovely Bones.” There, how does that make you feel? Tingly, I know. Read More »
