Natalie Portman to Tackle Jane Austen…and Zombies
The mild-mannered actress is venturing down Horror Lane.
Natalie Portman is preparing to scare the bejesus out of us with a brand new film based on the quirky bestseller Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.
The book, which is an expanded version of the Jane Austen classic written by Seth Grahame-Smith and Austen, follows a woman’s quest for love during the time of an outbreak that turns the deceased into – you guessed it – zombies.
The V for Vendetta star will portray Elizabeth Bennett, who gets sidetracked from her mission to exterminate the flesh-eating monsters by the arrival of the vastly arrogant Mr. Darcy.
Are you looking forward to an edgier Portman, or does the plot make you a bit too queasy? (Variety)
