Eleventh Doctor to star in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies


(From The Independent) Matt Smith is set to join the cast of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies – Jane Austen’s enduring classic with a supernatural twist.

The former Doctor Who actor, 31, will join a starry cast including Downton Abbey actress Lily James, Sam Riley, Jack Huston, Bella Heathcote and Douglas Booth.

Based on the parody novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, the film merges Austen’s 1813 novel of manners with elements of modern zombie fiction.

Smith, who won a Bafta for his stint as the eleventh Doctor, will play Mr Collins, a vicar in search of a wife who proposes to a martial arts-trained Elizabeth Bennett (James). But Bennett is more concerned with protecting the countryside from roaming zombies than settling down to family life.

Burr Steers, who starred in Pulp Fiction, is to direct from a script co-written by Oscar-nominated David O Russell. Smith has also recently been cast in Terminator: Genesis, alongside Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke.

Following a string of creative problems since 2009, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is to begin shooting on 24 September and is scheduled for release in 2015.
