You can't keep a good zombie project down.

Panorama Media announced today they are joining Darko Entertainment, Handsomecharlie Films and producer Allison Shearmur in the production of Seth Grahame-Smith's worldwide best seller PRIDE, PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES. The company will come on to produce, finance and will handle foreign sales on the film.

Recent Oscar nominee David O.Russell (SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK) wrote the screenplay, although he won't direct. (Russell, Mike White and Craig Gillespie are among the names who have been attached in the past.)

The film will be produced by Darko Entertainment’s Sean McKittrick, Natalie Portman, Annette Savitch and Allison Shearmur of Allison Shearmur Productions. It will be executive produced by Darko’s Edward H. Hamm Jr., Aleen Keshishian and Panorama’s Marc Butan.

The team is currently out to directors, and the film will be packaged for Cannes where Panorama’s international sales unit, headed by Kimberly Fox, plans to introduce the title. CAA, which brokered the deal on behalf of the filmmakers, represents the film’s domestic distribution rights.

As our story opens, a mysterious plague has fallen upon the quiet English village of Meryton-and the dead are returning to life! Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet is determined to wipe out the zombie menace, but she’s soon distracted by the arrival of the haughty and arrogant Mr. Darcy. What ensues is a delightful comedy of manners with plenty of civilized sparring between the two young lovers-and even more violent sparring on the blood-soaked battlefield as Elizabeth wages war against hordes of flesh-eating undead.

Extra Tidbit: Remains to be seen if Portman (above) will star in the film.

I've never read the book, but I think the mash up of zombies and Pride and Prejudice is an interesting combo! Hopefully it sees the light of day
