Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Just Won’t Die, Insists It’s Still Being Made into a Movie

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Book CoverJust when you thought Seth Grahame-Smith’s wacky, zombified take on Jane Austen’s English romance “Pride and Prejudice” was dead, someone goes and resurrects the bloody thing.

Again.

Panorama Media has officially announced that they are joining the long-in-development (but no actor or director really wants to actually make it, it seems) adaptation of Grahame-Smith’s novel “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies”, with plans to produce, finance and handle foreign sales for the film — if it ever actually gets made, that is.

Natalie Portman remains one of the film’s producers, and honestly, if she actually wants to get this thing made, she would attach herself as its star, too. The fact that she isn’t doing that makes you wonder how much a “producer” actually does besides sell his/her name to a movie so the PR folks could easier sell it to you, Joe Blow moviegoer, who probably knows who Natalie Portman is, but have absolutely no idea who Seth Grahame-Smith is.

“Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” is currently looking for a director, with the film being packaged to sell at Cannes in Frogtown later this year.
