The long-gestating film adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is finally set to start filming next month. Deadline reports that the film will star Lily James as Elizabeth Bennett, Bella Heathcote as one of the other four Bennett sisters, and Sam Riley as Mr. Darcy. Jack Huston is reportedly in talks for a role as well; the film will be directed by Burr Steers (Igby Goes Down).
The film is based on Grahame-Smith's novel which sets a zombie outbreak amidst Jane Austen's classic novel. The script was written by Steers and David O. Russell.
