'Pride & Prejudice & Zombies' Lands Two 'Games of Thrones' Stars

Lena Headey & Charles Dance

After landing former "Doctor Who" star Matt Smith, the adaptation of Pride & Prejudice & Zombies has picked up two more cast members from a revered fan favorite series. Lena Headey and Charles Dance respectively play Cersei and Tywin Lannister on the hit HBO series "Game of Thrones" and now they've both landed roles in the film that adds zombies into Jane Austen's classic period romance novel. Burr Steers is directing the film with Lily James in the lead as Liz Bennett, who has her socially forbidden love affair unfolding in 19th century England made a bit more complicated by a full-on outbreak of zombies. Read on!

Unfortunately, Deadline's report doesn't indicate which characters Headey and Dance will be playing. But this is a rather impressive cast as the two join Sam Riley, Bella Heathcoate, Jack Huston, Douglas Booth and Suki Waterhouse in the film as well. It's been a long journey to get this film made, but it seems to be finally coming together. Natalie Portman was once slated to lead the film, but after it kept stalling, she fell away and is now only acting as a producer. The question is whether or not fans of the book are still interested, or if general audiences who haven't read the book will give it a chance. Stay tuned.

Cool, but they should have done this within two years of the book's release not ten years.
