Pride and Prejudice and Zombies get a first look


Seth Grahame-Smith is an author who had his book, Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter, turned into a live-action film. Now his other book, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, will also be turned into a movie.

Entertainment Weekly has released the first-look photo from the zombie parody starring Ellie Bamber as Lydia, Bella Heathcote as Jane, Lily James as Elizabeth, Millie Brady as Mary and Sukie Waterhouse as Kitty. Together, they are the Bennet sisters.


Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is a parody of Pride and Prejudice, a book by Jane Austin. Burr Steers is directing the film starring period sisters killing zombies via martial arts.

Lily James, who plays Elizabeth, says that the two Elizabeth’s are similar.

“Even in the original story, Elizabeth’s a fighter and beyond her contemporaries in her ambitions and her ideas of women,” she tells Entertainment Weekly. “She’s a badass warrior. She’s a ninja.”

Principal photography started in late September.
