Screen Gems have released some new images from their forthcoming production, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.
Directed by Burr Steers, and based on the parody novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, the film follows Jane Austen’s classic character, Elizabeth Bennett (Lily James) and her sisters (played by Ellie Bamber, Millie Brady, Bella Heathcote and Suki Waterhouse), as they try to navigate the pressures of 19th century society and fend off hoards of blood-thirsty zombies.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Steers explained how his approach to the film was more of a spin on Jane Austen than a hysterical B-movie: “The idea was that it was Pride and Prejudice set in this alternate world and then for everyone to play it straight. The movie’s big wink is that there is no big wink.”
The film also stars Lena Headey, Charles Dance, Matt Smith, Douglas Booth, Jack Huston and Sam Riley. It is set to be released in UK cinemas on 12th February 2016.
