PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES is an upcoming 2016 horror comedy romance film directed by Burr Steers and co-written with David O. Russell, based on the 2009 novel of same name by Seth Grahame-Smith. The film stars Lily James, Sam Riley, Jack Huston, Bella Heathcote, Douglas Booth, Matt Smith, Charles Dance, and Lena Headey.
A zombie outbreak has fallen upon the land in Jane Austen’s classic tale of the tangled relationships between lovers from different social classes in 19th century England. Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet (James) is a master of martial arts and weaponry and the handsome Mr. Darcy (Reilly) is a fierce zombie killer, yet the epitome of upper class prejudice. As the zombie outbreak intensifies, they must swallow their pride and join forces on the blood-soaked battlefield.
