Cameras will FINALLY start rolling on Sept. 24 for the long awaited film adaptation of the novel “Pride And Prejudice And Zombies”. Matt Smith is just the latest name added to the cast, which so far includes Lily James, Sam Riley, Jack Huston,Bella Heathcote and Douglas Booth.
The basic gist of the story is one familiar to readers of the source material (Jane Austin’s classic “Pride and Prejudice”). Liz Bennett (James), is pressured by her family to marry into a wealthy upper-class home but chafes at the stiff social mores of Victorian England. Instead, she feels that she should help defend the countryside against the onslaught of a horrifying zombie plague.
Smith will play Mr. Collins, a parson who is on the lookout for a wife and proposes to Bennett.
Burr Steers is directing.
