Zombie Jane Austen

3It’s Pride and Prejudice like you’ve never seen it before, as Jane Austen’s 19th Century classic is invaded by hordes of flesh-eating zombies! With its killer premise, an incredible cast of established stars and Hollywood’s hottest rising talent, and big, blood-splattered action, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is the literary-monster mash-up you’ve been waiting to feast on!

Pride & Prejudice & Zombies is a fresh twist on Jane Austen’s widely celebrated novel. A mysterious plague has fallen upon 19th century England, the land is overrun with the undead and feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James) is a master of martial arts and weaponry. Casting aside personal and social prejudices, Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy (Sam Riley) must unite on the blood-soaked battlefield to rid the country of the zombie menace and discover their true love for one another.5

Based on book by Seth Grahame-Smith (and Jane Austen, of course), it’s one of greatest premises in movie history: what if the literary classic was retold, but this time packed with the living dead? Will Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy still find love? Or will be too busy chopping down an army of the undead for romance?

Screenwriter and director Burr Steer has done a fantastic job in bringing the crazy premise to life, turning the literary world of Pride and Prejudice into a blood-soaked battlefield – as inventive as it is exciting and action packed. There’s also a great cast assembled, as young talents Lily James, Sam Riley and Suki Waterhouse have enormous fun with their roles, while established stars such as Charles Dance and Lena Headey bring a sense of gravitas to the production. Fun, frenetic, and action-packed, this is one literary classic not to miss!
