PrideAndPrejudiceAndZombiesLike the shambling undead in its title, it just seems that the prospect of getting an adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith’s Pride And Prejudice And Zombies onto the big screen seems to never truly die. After a number of attempts have fallen apart, it looks as if the film will be getting in front of cameras as early as this fall.

Deadline is reporting that heading up the cast for this latest attempt will be British actors Lily James and Sam Riley and Australia’s Bella Heathcote with Igby Goes Down‘s Burr Steers directing. James will be playing Elizabeth Bennett, Riley is set as Mr. Darcy and Heathcote will be Elizabeth’s sister.

The adaptation started life shortly after the book was published in 2009, with Natalie Portman in the lead role. Portman is still attached as a producer, but a number of actors being temporarily attached to the film. On the directorial side, the project has seen David O. Russell, Mike White and Craig Gillespie all saw time attached to the project before moving on.
