Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has had nothing but trouble in its attempts to appear on the big screen. While Natalie Portman as producer has been the only consistent thing about the potential film, it’s already had casting and directorial changes, in addition to being shelved as an idea.
It’s back to the front now, and Lily Collins (yes, that’s Phil Collins’ daughter – she’s 24, so you don’t have to feel guilty for having those thoughts) has been cast to star. Collins is an up-and-coming actress who’s already had roles in such films as Priest; Abduction; and Mirror, Mirror. Although she has a number of other roles under her belt that aren’t genre related, let’s hope she keeps a toe in the pool.
The news of Collins getting on board, in addition to Burr Steers being attached to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, spells good news for the film adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith’s book.
