Natalie Portman to Star in "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" 


We can pretend we didn't see this happening, but we are very happy that Natalie Portman is set to star and produce the big-screen adaptation of "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies."

Based on the bestselling book by Seth Grahame-Smith and Jane Austen, the novel is a mishmash of the Austen classic and the undead. It's about a woman's quest for love and independence while a deadly virus outbreak is happening around her. Of course, that deadly virus turns the victims into flesh-eating zombies.

Variety told us that "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."

Lionsgate is set to distribute.
