Lionsgate has dropped the first official trailer to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Directed by Burr Steers (17 Again) and starring up and comer Lily James (Cinderella) this “Romzom” is based on the book by the same title.

That’s a version of Pride and Prejudice that I can sit through. Wonder what the Austin fans will think of this, I know my wife will hate it, being such an Austin fan in all. Hopefully they can see the light side of it.

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 opens in February in Australia
