PP&Z Gets Screen Date

Pride Prejudice ZombiesMashups seem to be over, but zombies are still with us, as proved by the CW’s new series iZombie and AMC’s The Walking Dead, which just wrapped its fifth season.

So maybe there’s hope that the film version of Pride Prejudice and Zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith (Quirk Books, 2009), now scheduled to hit screens on Feb. 19, 2016, will avoid the fate of that box office disaster, Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter.

Directed by Burr Steers (Charlie St. Cloud), PP&Z stars the currently hot actress Lily James (Cinderella, Downton Abbey) as Elizabeth Bennett, with Sam Riley as Mr. Darcy. David Russell, celebrated as the director of American Hustle (2013) and Silver Linings Playbook (2012), co-wrote the script with Steers.
