Pride and Prejudice and Zombies - Elizabeth Found?

Taking the most tumultuous road possible to the big screen is Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

And now, through King's "Dollar Baby" program, director Pablo Macho Maysonet IV has added the September 11th thriller The Things They Left Behind to the list of King tales to make the big screen.
