‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’ and Portman

Friday, December 11 by

Earlier reports that Pride and Prejudice and Zombies would be a television miniseries seem to be nullified today. Variety reports that Natalie Portman is teaming up with Richard Kelly and Lionsgate to bring the project to the big screen. No word yet on when filming will begin. Portman is currently busy having angry sex with Mila Kunis in The Black Swan and then she has Kenneth Branagh‘s Thor after that.  According to Variety:

Portman will play feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet, who is distracted from her quest to eradicate the zombie menace by the arrival of the arrogant Mr. Darcy.

Is this some kind of trick? Throwing zombies into classic literature so that I’ll see it and maybe learn something?? Not gonna happen. **swigs from gasoline can** (Variety)
