Doctor Who’ Star Matt Smith Joins ‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’ (Exclusive)
Matt Smith, who recently completed a four-season stint starring in Doctor Who, has joined the cast of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, the adaptation of the Seth Grahame-Smith novel. The movie is a horror-comedy spin on Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. The heroine, Liz Bennett is pressured by her family to marry into a wealthy upper-class home but chafes at the stiff social mores of Victorian England. Instead, she feels that she should help defend the countryside against the onslaught of a horrifying zombie plague.
Pride, Prejudice and Zombies?
Jane Austen’s classic tale of the tangled relationships between lovers from different social classes in 19th century England is faced with a new challenge — an army of undead zombies.
I recently listened to the audio book of “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” and despite it’s ridiculous name, and even more ridiculous concept – thoroughly enjoyed it. I actually enjoyed it so much, I then got the other books in the series “Dawn of the Dreadfuls” and “Dreadfully ever after”. All most amusing, brilliantly produced by Brilliance Audio. Put your tongue firmly in your cheek and relax and enjoy this brilliant re-imagining of the classic literary gem… with *dreadfulls aka Zombies and (spoiler alert) girls with ninja skills 🙂
And now it’s coming to a telly near you? Fantastic, I can’t wait…
Still makes me chuckle just thinking about it…
