Good news from MTV.com for fans of the literary mash-up that was “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies”.
“Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” is something we’re very excited about here at MTV News. The book, written by Seth Grahame-Smith — co-creator of MTV’s “The Hard Times of RJ Berger” — takes Jane Austen’s classic and mashes it up with the walking dead. It was optioned last year by Natalie Portman, who will produce and star. David O. Russell is writing the script and directing. A good team-up, no question.
MTV’s very own Rick Marshall, editor of Splash Page, spoke to Portman at San Diego Comic-Con last month and she was happy to give an update on where things are at with the upcoming zombie mash-up.
“We just got a new draft from David O. Russell, who is adapting it and is going to direct it,” she said. “I’m such a big fan of his. ‘Flirting With Disaster’ is one of my favorite movies, and ‘Three Kings’ and pretty much everything he does is incredible.”
While Portman didn’t have anything to say about possible casting beyond herself — still too early — she did admit that things are moving right along. “We’ll probably be shooting next year, hopefully,” she said.
“It’s a really, I think, clever mash-up between genres. These women only obsessing over marriage is such a zombie kind of behavior. It’s kind of a perfect collision of genres.”
If you’ve yet to pick up the book itself, then look no further!
