Another Pride and Prejudice adaptation...

...but with zombies this time!

Variety reports that Natalie Portman will produce and star as Elizabeth Bennet in a movie adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. The original Pride and Prejudice was written by Jane Austen, and I guess to encourage more people to readfor the heck of it, Seth Grahame-Smith decided to do a rewrite of sorts, and add zombies to the mix. In this story, Elizabeth wields katanas and fights zombies, and Fitzwilliam Darcy (or Mr. Darcy to many of us) is now a monster-hunter.

Certainly sounds more interesting than the original. Remind me to go check out the book.
