After years of being in development, the adaptation of the period romance remix novel Pride & Prejudice & Zombies is finally in production, and a first look photo at some of the cast has surfaced online thanks to Entertainment Weekly (via SlashFilm). The film is directed by Burr Steers (17 Again, Igby Goes Down) and based on Seth Grahame-Smith's novel of the same name, following the classic romance we're all familiar with, but with the added complication of the undead putting everything and everyone in danger. Now a first look photo has revealed all of the Bennett sisters in the filmed, armed to fight zombies. Look!
Here's the first look at Pride & Prejudice & Zombies from Entertainment Weekly:
This isn't really an image from the film itself, but rather a promotional image showing off the characters Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Jane (Bella Heathcote), Elizabeth (Lily James), Mary (Millie Brady), and Kitty (Suki Waterhouse). The characters have been dealing with zombies (presumed to be a kind of plague) for about 70 years by the time our story begins, so these ladies are trained to deal with the threat of the undead. The rest of the cast includes Sam Riley as Mr. Darcy, Matt Smith as Mr. Collins, Jack Huston as Wickham, Douglas Booth as Bingley, and also Lena Headey and Charles Dance. Stay tuned for more.
