Natalie Portman gives an update on Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

08.06.2010

Natalie Portman plans to get her frilly dress covered with brain chunks in an adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's hit parody book PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES.

Portman recently gave an update to MTV, saying that director David O. Russell (THREE KINGS, I ♥ HUCKABEES) has been hard at work on the story (which might be part of why he's not making UNCHARTED).

"We just got a new draft from David O. Russell, who is adapting it and is going to direct it," she said. "We'll probably be shooting next year, hopefully."

How does Portman (who calls the material "a perfect collision of genres") know so much about the film's status? Because she's producing as well as plaing heroine Elizabeth Bennet, who finds her attention divided between the pompous Mr. Darcy and her family's war against hordes of flesh-craving undead.

I'm curious to see how it's success will compare to Pride and Prejudice. I'm afraid it will only attract a narrow audiance, but the audiance it will attract probably see ten times the number of movies of any other audiance.

Put it this way, my mother would purposely avoid any room where this might be played, yet she would love Pride and Prejudice (Which I don't think she has ever seen).

I on the other hand, am anxiously awaiting seeing Elizabeth Bennet physically release her real

I on the other hand, am anxiously awaiting seeing Elizabeth Bennet physically release her real charictor with a katina, and sholin martial training, yet really had no interest in Pride and Prejudice (which I happen to have the DVD, and have seen multiple times.)

If they are making this then I hope someone puts a push on adapting Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter.

Not sure about this movie yet, but I'm up for anything with Portman. It would be nice to see Portman in an action movie where she actually does some of the action, not like the Star Wars prequels, V for Vendetta, and most likely Thor.

Am I the only one who thinks this casting decision is based somewhat on Kiera Knightley (who bears a strong resemblance to Portman) being in the recent adaptation of the classic book?

I'm looking forward to it. If they can strike a good balance between the humor and the other elements, it should be an entertaining movie. Hopefully they cast some more hotties as the other four Bennet sisters.

All well and good, but I still maintain Portman was not a good choice for the character. I greatly doubt she'll be able to handle the physicality of the character. (I also think she isn't that great of an actor, but that's a moot point here, given what the film is.)

I agree with you. I think I would be more excited for this if we had a different/better actress involved.
