When I think Elton John, I think of Predator, don’t you?

Well, his film company, Rocket Pictures is hoping to make an adaptation of a Jane Austen novel that will even top Natalie Portman’s Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. That’s right, I’m talking about Pride and Predator.

Will Clark is set to direct “Pride and Predator,” which veers from the traditional period costume drama when an alien crash lands and begins to butcher the mannered protags, who suddenly have more than marriage and inheritance to worry about.

Shooting will begin in London later this year. John exec produces, and his Rocket partners Steve Hamilton Shaw and David Furnish are producing.

Here’s what Furnish had to say about the movie:

“It felt like a fresh and funny way to blow apart the done-to-death Jane Austen genre by literally dropping this alien into the middle of a costume drama, where he stalks and slashes to horrific effect,”

Fort hose of you wondering what role Elton John will play in this movie, the chances are that he’ll be handling the soundtrack. I for one look forward to seeing how he adapts Candle in the Wind to fit this project.
