Pride and Prejudice and Zombies?
Now this is just getting silly. Sean Williams has very kindly pointed me to an article in io9 explaining that Pride and Predator is only one of three science fictional reworkings of Jane Austen which are in the pipeline. I have to say that while Pride and Prejudice and Zombies sounds good to me, Pride and Predator still pips it at the post.
Three Jane Austen Science Fiction Movies In The Pipeline?
Update: I now discover that Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is an adaptation of an existing novel (“The Classic Regency Romance—Now with Ultraviolent Zombie Mayhem!” according to the publisher). I’m trying, but I’m just not sure I can keep my finger from the Amazon trigger . . .
This is a nice post on “Zombies”! My name is Peter Ricci, and I am a college student and journalist. Currently, I am writing for ‘Too Shy to Stop,’ an online magazine that focuses on culture and the arts.
My latest story, as chance would have it, is about “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies,” and I stumbled across your post while doing research. Here is the link to the story: http://www.tooshytostop.com/index.php/2009/02/25/mr-darcy-wants-to-suck-your-blood/. I focus on the history behind the story, splashing on a little commentary and original sources.
So check it out! I think you’ll like it. Be sure to leave a comment, also. We love reader input!
