You know how adding pirates, ninjas, or zombies to anything immediately makes it hilarious (source: the internet)? So does Natalie Portman! So much so that she's decided to produce and star in an adaptation of the novel Pride and Prejudice and Zombies:
Portman will star in and produce “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies,” a film that is based on the bestselling book written by Seth Grahame-Smith and Austen.
Though Austen’s name is on the book, Grahame-Smith took the liberty of adding bloodthirsty flesh-eating zombies to the mix.
Described as an expanded version of the Austen classic, the book tells the timeless story of a woman’s quest for love and independence amid the outbreak of a deadly virus that turns the undead into vicious killers.
Portman will play feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet, who is distracted from her quest to eradicate the zombie menace by the arrival of the arrogant Mr. Darcy.
Finally, a Jane Austen movie us GUYS can enjoy, am I right? The girl will be all like, "Ooooh, I'm crying, this is so beautiful," and we'll be all, "Yeah, right! I'm enjoying the zombies and the attractive looks of Natalie Portman!" Which we'll say in an aside so she won't hear. Am I right? Woo! Chug!
