Pride and Prejudice and Zombies–the movie

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies–the movie

“It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains.” Thus begins Seth Graham-Smith’s Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Classic Regency Romance – Now with Ultraviolent Zombie Mayhem! Back in early 2009, I posted about the book (for the old posts, click here and here).  Despite being sold on Amazon, I thought it was a joke. It was not. Over the summer I’ve seen it on the shelves of major bookstores, with a poor young lady zombie wearing a decomposing grin and blood-splattered gown. It gets worse (or better?) — now the Regency zombies are getting ready for their silver screen debut, and Natalie Portman will be starring and producing. I guess we shouldn’t be too surprised..after all, anything related to Jane Austen sells. A lot of Jane Austen fans will want to read/see these works…how about you?

NY Times Notices Zombie Fever!

NY Times Notices Zombie Fever!

Remember how I posted a few weeks ago about the zombie Pride and Prejudice book by Seth Grahame-Smith coming out? The NY Times has noticed all the chatter about the book too. Check out this article: I Was a Regency Zombie. Perhaps my favorite line: “Holy Northanger Abbey!” LOL.

P.S. The book’s opening line is: “It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains.”

P.P.S. If you can believe it, there is also a competing film project in the works, called Pride and Predator. More here.
