The author of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Seth-Grahame Smith, talks a bit about the film adaptation in this new interview. He pretty much confirms everything that we believe to be true. Hopefully Nat can take some time off to chill a bit before this project starts to roll. She really is ridiculously busy these days.
GD: Natalie Portman and Richard Kelly are reportedly working on a film adaptation of your book Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Thoughts? Any place for Colin Firth in the movie (sorry, my wife made me ask that)?
SGS: Man…the ladies LOVE Colin Firth, huh? Yeah – Lionsgate is making the PPZ movie with Richard Kelly producing, Natalie Portman producing and starring as Elizabeth, and David O. Russell adapting and directing. Not too shabby if you ask me.
