Production Nearly Ready to Begin on Pride and Prejudice and Zombies?It was January when we last did a story on the long delayed adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, but over the past few months a cast has come together, and filming is about to kick off.

Per Deadline, principal photography is slated to start in September with Cross Creek Pictures having acquired domestic rights with a commitment for a wide U.S. release. Lily James (pictured), Sam Riley, and Bella Heathcote will star.

Burr Steers (Igby Goes Down, Charlie St. Cloud) is directing from a screenplay by David O. Russell and Steers. Brian Oliver, Allison Shearmur, Sean McKittrick, Natalie Portman, Annette Savitch, Tyler Thompson, and Marc Butan will produce the film, which mixes the 1817 Jane Austen classic Pride and Prejudice with a legion of bloodthirsty undead, on behalf of Sierra/Affinity, which is also handling foreign sales. (The project was formerly at Panorama but moved over with Butan when he joined Sierra/Affinity in January.) CAA packaged the Cross Creek deal.

James (“Downton Abbey”) plays Elizabeth Bennet, Riley (Maleficent) is Mr. Darcy, and Heathcote (Dark Shadows) portrays Elizabeth’s sister. Jack Huston is also in talks. Seth Grahame-Smith’s popular novel plays with the relationships between lovers from different social classes in 19th century England who are faced with the challenge of an army of the “sorry stricken” (i.e., zombies).

Now that things are moving again, look for lots more soon!

Exclusive: Uncrossing Rock Out in Get It From Me

Published

on

Alright rockers, we’ve got something just for you here! Today, we’re happy to premiere “Get It From Me” from new rock group Uncrossing, which features ex-Activator guitarist Jared Drace! The track comes from the band’s upcoming self-titled EP and it’s a moderately paced, sludgy, doomy track that features strong female vocals. If you’re in the mood for something to get you through the rest of today until the weekend hits, head on down and hit ‘Play’!

Drace tells Dread Central, “Musically, this was a fun one to come up with just because it’s a total mish-mashing of influences, well of MY influences at least. I mean there’s a solid Type O Negative-style chug for the verse and an outro riff that has a kind of Tool-vibe to it, and that’s not even mentioning the melodic beer commercial-like solo in the middle which is definitely a side-effect of listening to too much In Flames & Arch Enemy in my youth! But assembled together and with everyone putting their own stamp on it, we get something that ends up sounding like an Uncrossing song.

Uncrossing’s self-titled 3-track EP will be available for streaming and free download on February 9. You can follow the band on Facebook or Instagram.

If you want to check out the band, you can see them on February 10 at Lucky 13 in Brooklyn, NY.

Exclusive: Venture Into Black Mirror’s Black Museum With Cristobal Tapia de Veer’s “We Got a Miracle”

Published

on

One of the most anticipated shows to premiere last year (really late last year) was Netflix’s fourth season of Charlie Brooker’s “Black Mirror”. The show has amassed a dedicated following who voraciously devour each new morsel whenever the opportunity presents itself. For those who are eager for a new and different taste, we’ve got something rather special for you today!

Below is an exclusive stream of “We Got a Miracle”, a composition by Cristobal Tapia de Veer (The Girl With All the Gifts) for the “Black Museum” episode. Dark, brooding, and hypnotic, the muted opening enters a tribalistic rhythm with a muted piano piercing the pulsations with staccato stabs. Ghostly vocals hover later on, specters that appear briefly before fading quickly into the darkness. The track builds upon the tribal drums and enters the realm of dissonance without becoming offensive to the ears, culminating in a moment of near ritualistic worship.

The beginning, discovering the Black Museum, that was going to set the tone for the rest of the show,” explained Tapia de Veer. “The music morphed in many ways throughout the 3 stories, then goes back to where it started with the Black Museum, although with a sense of accomplishment, but also a sense of doom.

Black Museum is available as a digital download through Lakeshore Records’ Bandcamp.
