Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
The big screen adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's Pride and Prejudice and Zombies simply will not stay dead, and given the subject matter, that's pretty fitting! Word out of EFM is suggesting that the cast is falling into place and the flick is just about ready to shoot!
We live in a very strange world in which very strange things can happen. Case in point: the big screen adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is once again showing signs of life. It even has a director and a possible star in Lily Collins!
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. It's like the revolving door of productions. Names get attached. Names leave. Directors jump ship. Actors refuse offers. If it could go wrong, believe us it had. Yet word has come today that the project remains undead.

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.
Can we just take this project down with a well placed head shot already? Please? Maybe some things are just not meant to be. The most ill-fated attempt of an adaptation of the year has just suffered yet another blow.
Quirk Books has teamed up with eBook company PadWorx (renowned for their #1 book apps Dracula: The Official Stoker Family Edition and A Christmas Carol for iPad) to release Pride & Prejudice & Zombies: The Interactive eBook for the iPhone and iPad (and soon the Android).

And the casting woes continue for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. It's as if telling the powers that be "NO" is en vogue around Hollywood. Here's some advice: If you guys really wanna make this movie, instead of wasting more time being snubbed by all these big-name celebs, find an unknown and make her a star.
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.
When last we reported on Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Zombieland's Emma Stone had been offered the lead role in the film, but apparently things didn't work out as planned because now she's out of the running and the production start date has been moved to early 2012.
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.
One little lady with a penchant for killing the undead in very imaginative ways may be at it again in Lionsgate's big screen adaptation of the popular Seth Grahame-Smith mash-up novel! Read on for details.
A funny thing happened in 2009. People were talking about zombies, and not just us - but people who NEVER talk about zombies. Because 2009 was the year Jane Austen's classic work Pride and Prejudice was infested with the undead.
