Mirror Mirror star Lily Collins is set to star in the big screen adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith‘s Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. It's also being reported that Burr Steers (17 Again, Charlie St. Cloud) is going to direct it. So basically what could have been a really good movie, is going to end up being mediocre.
At least it will be developed from a script that David O. Russell wrote when he was attached to it, so that's a plus. Natalie Portman is also still attached as a producer. She and Russell were originally attached to the movie way back in 2009. It's crazy that the movie is taking so long to get to the big screen.
The book is an expanded version of the Jane Austen classic. It tells the story of a woman’s quest for love and independence amid the outbreak of a deadly virus that turns the undead into vicious killers.
What are your thoughts on Lily Collins taking on the lead role in the movie? How do you think it will turn out? Do you think this new team of talent is eventually going to fall apart as well?
