This book soon became the talk of the town(really, the world) in recent years so of course somebody hanging around Hollywood decided to transform the words on the pages up to the silver screen.
The book is an “expanded edition” as Goodreads website says, and satirical revision to Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice.It follows the same storyline- except with the small problem of the dead coming to life. A plague has hit the village of Meryton and death is constant. When it ends, the dead come back to eat the brains out of the villagers. Mr. Darcy then comes into town distracting part time zombie-slayer, part time lady Elizabeth Bennett and thus the story begins!
The book is written by Seth Grahame-Smith, Philip Smiley and Jane Austen, of course. It came out in May 2009.
The movie adaptation was released in theaters Feb. 5 of this year. It stars Lily James, Sam Riley and Douglas Booth. The screenplay was written by Burr Steers. Check out the trailer below!
