I doubt very much that Jane Austen had zombies in mind when she wrote Pride and Prejudice, but here they are…
A classic tale gets a twist in the historicals as zombies are introduced to 19th Century England. Love affairs that span the class system are little challenge compared to the rise of the walking dead. Victims of the black plague are reanimated and looking to feast on the flesh of the living, in typical zombie fashion. From Sony Pictures Entertainment the cast of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is comprised of some surprisingly notable actors including Lena Headey and Charles Dance (Game of Thrones) alongside Matt Smith (Doctor Who) with Lily James starring as Elizabeth Bennet.
The film appears to be offering a slightly sexier look at a classic period drama laced with infinitely more violence than the source material. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies might just be an entertaining little romp this winter.
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies hits US theatres on February 5th whilst the UK waits until February 11th.
