Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, a Jane Austen rewrite that injects a little undead action and is due to hit bookstores in April.

Seth Grahame-Smith’s novel apparently makes liberal use of Austen’s original text, so far out of copyright that anybody could do anything they want to it with only the hordes of rampant Austenites to worry about. ‘About 85% is the original says the author.

    I saw this on a movie news website and thought it was shooped. This is for real! Holy Shit!

    Apparently Hollywood is battling over it to make it a movie.www.firstshowing.net/2009/02/09/hollywood-studios-battling-over-pride-and-prejudice-and-zombies/

    I love the new Keira Knightly version. I still need to read the original, but may have to read this first.

    Way to proliferate prejudice guys, they prefer to be called the living impaired.

    Yeah, Jane Austen’s books, like many other classics, are now in the public domain, which means anyone can have their way with them! I am working the classic Sense and Sensibility into the new classic Scents in a Hillbilly. Just imagine the original, bunch of once wealthy women living now in a secluded cottage and throw in the more disturbing scenes of Deliverance. Man, I am a friggin’ genius!

    @BowToMe:

    Is that really true? About your plans I mean. You’re probably kidding, but even in that case – whoa.

    @dieAntagonista: @nyokki: At first I was kidding, I read and article at another fantastic site I frequent, www.joblo.com/jane-austen-zombies a couple of days ago, which started some dusty un-oiled cogs in my brain. The more I think about it the better it sounds, maybe I could start some sort of screenplay … who knows? It couldn’t be much worse than the other crap Hollywood spews out.

    lol.. awesome sauce. I hate 99% of Austen’s work, but I’m not a chick lit fan so “meh”. Can’t wait for the zombie upgrade. I’m so glad this wasn’t a hoax.
