It’s been a long road for Lionsgate’s big screen adaptation of the popular Seth Grahame-Smith mash-up novel, Pride, Prejudice & Zombies. Chris Eggertsen caught up with director Craig Gillespie during Comic-Con for a quick update.
“I was not looking to stay in this genre, per se, but again, I got the script, David O. Russell wrote the adaptation [and] I just love when you can mix genres,” he said. “And this is, again, a mix of horror and humor. But the humor in this is from Jane Austen. And they stayed so true to the [original] book, and the banter, and the dialogue, from the actual ‘Pride & Prejudice’. And that to me is gonna be a lot of fun…they take it all very seriously, with the zombie threat.”
Sounds good to us. Look for more soon!
