If you were one of the five people who enjoyed the genre mashup “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter,” then “Pride And Prejudice And Zombies” is probably right up your alley. After all, it’s based on another book by ‘Vampire Hunter’ author Seth Grahame-Smith and is exactly what it sounds like: Jane Austen‘s beloved book populated with the undead. And while we’ll have to forever dream of what David O. Russell would’ve done with the material (he was fleetingly attached to write and direct), Burr Steers (“17 Again,” “Igby Goes Down“) is now at the helm.
Starring Lily James, Sam Riley, Jack Huston, Bella Heathcote, Douglas Booth, Matt Smith, Charles Dance and Lena Headey, the movie promises all the gowns and period detail you’d expect from Austen’s story, but twisted into something much weirder and more gnarly.
Check out the two new clips below to see if it’s your cup of tea. “Pride And Prejudice And Zombies” opens on February 5th.
