When the zombie craze started ramping up, there was a lot of buzz about the film adaptation for Pride and Predjudice and Zombies. Then, there was over a year with no real news. Now, the movie is set to actually go before cameras in September with a cast led by Lily James, Sam Riley and Bella Heathcote.
The adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith’s Pride And Prejudice And Zombies has been seeking big-screen life ever since the smash mash-up novel was published in 2009 — but through a series of director changes, it sometimes looked like it had one foot in the grave. No more. The movie version now is a reality with principal photography slated to start in September and Cross Creek Pictures acquiring domestic rights with a commitment for a wide U.S. release.
