Matt Smith To Star In Pride And Prejudice And Zombies

While Matt Smith may have left Dr. Who’s Tardis behind it seems time travelling is still firmly on his agenda.  He’s recently agreed to star in the next Terminator film Terminator: Genisys and now is going back even further in time.  Because the news is that Matt Smith has been cast in the adaptation of Pride And Prejudice And Zombies.

The film is adapted from Seth Grahame-Smith’s book which takes the concept of Jane Austin’s Pride And Prejudice and makes things even more complicated for heroin Elizabeth Bennett by not only struggling to find a husband but also having to deal with a quaint English countryside that happens to be crawling with the walking dead.  Of course it helps that she’s had ninja training and knows how to kill those pesky zombies.

Smith will take on the role of Mr. Collins with Lily James playing Elizabeth and Control’s Sam Riley taking the key role of Mr. Darcy whilst Douglas Booth, Jack Huston and Bella Heathcote are also all set to star.  17 Again director Burr Steers (yes, that’s an actual name) is set to start shooting the film next week.

Before that though there’s a chance that we’ll get to see Smith in Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut Lost River which is still awaiting a UK release date.  Source – The Hollywood Reporter

Alex Moss’ obsession with film began the moment he witnessed the Alien burst forth from John Hurt’s stomach. It was perhaps ill-advised to witness this aged 6 but much like the beast within Hurt, he became infected by a parasite called ‘Movies’. Rarely away from his computer or a big screen, as he muses on Cinematic Deities, Alex is “more machine now than man. His mind is twisted and evil”. Email: alex.moss@filmjuice.com
