Natalie Portman Signs On to Star and Produce in Film Adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies 2009-12-11 10:00:29

Natalie Portman to Fight Off Zombies

I'm psyched about this news! Natalie Portman has signed on to star and produce in the film adaptation of the book Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Seth Grahame-Smith's spoof on the classic Austen tale. In the new version of the story, Elizabeth Bennet fights off the undead — until she becomes sidetracked by the arrival of the dashing Mr. Darcy.

As a fan of both Portman and Jane Austen, I can't imagine better casting for this role. Portman has the obvious grace necessary to pull off the 19th century heroine, but I think she'll also bring just the right touch of humor to this ridiculous premise, too. How fun will it be to watch her slay zombies?!

Are you a fan of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies? Are you excited to see it on the big screen or is it one of those books that should be left alone? How do you feel about Portman as the leading lady?
