Yes, you read that correctly. The popular new(ish) book Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith is in development to arrive on the big screen in 2011. No word on casting as yet. I vote that they hire a cast of well known Shakespearean actors. What about you all?
One wonders how well the translation from print will be handled.
And if you enjoyed this book, be on the look out for Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters by Jane Austen and Ben H. Winters, which is coming out on 15 September 2009. Yes, another mash-up of a book. Whatever would Miss Austen say?
