Hold on to your brains, folks: The world’s rotten obsession with the zombie genre continues next year with the asinine and yet hilarious Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.
Igby Goes Down director Burr Steers adapts the story from Seth Grahame-Smith’s 2009 parody novel, which tossed the walking dead into Jane Austen’s class-conscious tale. Lily James, Ellie Bamber, Millie Brady, Bella Heathcote, and Suki Waterhouse all star as the heroines in corsets.
Here’s the official synopsis:
PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES is a fresh twist on Jane Austen’s widely celebrated novel. A mysterious plague has fallen upon 19th century England, the land is overrun with the undead and feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet is a master of martial arts and weaponry. Casting aside personal and social prejudices, Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy must unite on the blood-soaked battlefield to rid the country of the zombie menace and discover their true love for one another.
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies stalks theaters February 5th, 2016.
