There are certain times when certain subjects come along and prove to be so successful that everybody decides to take on the genre. That is exactly what has happened with zombies in recent years, as we have seen a number of zombie movies and television shows being made in recent years, with varied degrees of success.
With zombies proving very popular at the moment, and a lot of people deciding to adapt novels for the big screen, it only seems fitting that a movie adaptation of the hit novel Pride and Prejudice and Zombies should be made. British actor Douglas Booth is set to star in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, with production set to begin later in the month.
For those of you who are familiar with Pride and Prejudice but do not know much about Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, the movie is officially described as "Jane Austen's classic tale of the tangled relationships between lovers from different social classes in 19th century England is faced with a new challenge -- an army of undead zombies."
As well as starring Douglas Booth, the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies cast also includes such talented stars as Sam Riley, Jack Huston, and Bella Heathcote, among many more impressive stars. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is being directed by Burr Steers, who also helped to adapt the screenplay for the project from the Seth Grahame-Smith novel. The movie will begin production in London later this month, with a release date expected sometime in 2015.
