PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES: Lily Collins cast in Burr Steers Film

Lily Collins Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

Lily Collins cast in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. The casting of Lily Collins in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (or Pride, Prejudice and Zombies) answers the question of who will star in the Burr Steers directed film. Lily Collins will play the character Elizabeth Bennet.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies‘s plot synopsis: from the book written by Seth Grahame-Smith and Jane Austin, “‘It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains.’ So begins Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, an expanded edition of the beloved Jane Austen novel featuring all-new scenes of bone-crunching zombie mayhem. As our story opens, a mysterious plague has fallen upon the quiet English village of Meryton—and the dead are returning to life! Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet is determined to wipe out the zombie menace, but she’s soon distracted by the arrival of the haughty and arrogant Mr. Darcy. What ensues is a delightful comedy of manners with plenty of civilized sparring between the two young lovers—and even more violent sparring on the blood-soaked battlefield. Can Elizabeth vanquish the spawn of Satan? And overcome the social prejudices of the class-conscious landed gentry? Complete with romance, heartbreak, swordfights, cannibalism, and thousands of rotting corpses, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies transforms a masterpiece of world literature into something you’d actually want to read.”
