Thus far just about everything has gone wrong concerning the big screen adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. It's like the revolving door of productions. Names get attached. Names leave. Directors jump ship. Actors refuse offers. It's a perfect storm. Writer Marti Noxon recently issued her thoughts on this ever so troubled production.
It's been an interesting year for Craig Gillespie. After helming DreamWorks' Fright Night remake, he was next poised to direct the film adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's novel Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and brought in acclaimed writer Marti Noxon (with whom he worked on Fright Night) to complete the script. Then in October it was announced he was exiting the project, leaving it up in the air.
The mixture of comedy and horror can be a really tough formula to get right, and lord knows it could either be a tremendous success or an awful mess. In this latest clip from the upcoming Blu-ray of Fright Night 2011 this process is examined. Dig it!

Taking the most tumultuous road possible to the big screen is Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Just about every conceivable thing short of Bill Murray refusing to read the script has happened (not that he was ever attached to this; we just couldn't resist taking a jab), but finally an offer is out to someone to assume the lead role of "Elizabeth Bennet".
After the incredible success of Seth Grahame-Smith's novel Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, adapted from Jane Austen's work of nearly the same name (sans zombies, of course), a movie was the next logical step. The story of Elizabeth Bennet carving up zombies and duking it out with Lady Catherine screamed to be brought to life on the big screen.
