Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Heading to Theaters in February 2016
The adaptation of the comedic Jane Austen/Zombie mash-up novel, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, has finally got a release date. Screen Gems has announced that Burr Steer's movie will hit theaters on February 19th 2016.

Starring Lily James (Cinderella) as Elizabeth and Sam Riley (Maleficent) as Mr. Darcy, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies will bring to life Seth Grahame-Smith's unique take on a literary classic, which sees a legion of undead descend upon 19th Century Meryton, England. The novel is set in alternate universe, which largely follows the British Regency era, but with one small difference: zombies roam freely through the countryside and are looked upon - with a typically British 'stiff upper lip'- as more of a nuisance than a deadly killer.

Many feel that Hollywood has become somewhat oversaturated with zombie movies in recent years, but you can't argue that Steer's movie isn't at least a little bit different from the traditional zombie fare. Plus, the source material for the movie received largely positive reviews for its grim take on an iconic era in literary history, but if that's not enough to convince you to watch this movie, its cast probably is. Joining Lily James and Sam Riley in the cast are a number of geek icons including Game of Thrones's Lena Headey and Charles Dance, as well as Doctor Who's Matt Smith.
