Pride and Predator

Now this I like. Variety reports that Elton John’s production company, Rocket Pictures, are working on an adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice in which proceedings are interrupted by the crash-landing of a hostile, flesh-eating alien. And if that doesn’t sound good enough all on its own there’s always the film’s title, Pride and Predator.

Apparently Sir Elton will compose the music (which I suppose has horrific possibilities all of its own).

    I’d see that movie. But Lizzie would have to triumph in the end.
    Be nice to see the Austenian baddies graphically eviscerated before Lizzie finds Great Uncle Humphrey’s Indian elephant gun and blows the predator away.
