"She's the most badass zombie slayer there is." Can't wait to see her kick ass. Even more previews of movies that will be hitting Comic-Con next week. Entertainment Weekly, once again, has debuted new photos, this time they're for Pride & Prejudice & Zombies, adapted from Seth Grahame-Smith's book that revises Jane Austen's classic to be a zombie tale. Now it's a zombie movie, starring a lovely cast. "Lizzy" leads the way, played by Lily James. Plus: Ellie Bamber, Bella Heathcote, Millie Brady & Suki Waterhouse. The cast features Sam Riley as Mr. Darcy, Matt Smith as Mr. Collins, Jack Huston, Douglas Booth, plus Lena Headey, but these photos are mostly the main girls. We hope to see a trailer soon. Until then…
Here's the new set of photos, direct from Entertainment Weekly. Click to read more about the adaptation:

Adapted from Seth Grahame-Smith's novel, based on Jane Austen's classic story published in 1813. The film is produced by Natalie Portman, Marc Butan, Sean McKittrick, Brian Oliver, Annette Savitch, Allison Shearmur & Tyler Thompson.

Looks like garbage. I remember when the novel came out when I was in High School...that was a long time ago. A long time ago.

Six years is not a long time. But I agree that this will be "garbage"

That is long to try and ride on the coattails of a "popular" and "trending" book though.

The book was garbage. This movie looks like a corn fest. I like how they try to sex it up with hot chick in Victorian underwear. (Victorian's Secret, maybe?) Anyway, the sexiness is not gonna save this trainwreck (see Sucker Punch)...
