Writer Seth Grahame-Smith Updates Us on the ‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies' Movie

With all the attention being paid these days to the upcoming film adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, as well as Dark Shadows (which Grahame-Smith scripted), and his still-in-development story for the Beetlejuice sequel, what's happening with the writer's long-awaited Pride and Prejudice and Zombies movie? Grahame-Smith addressed this question yesterday at WonderCon 2012. Read what he had to say after the jump.

"Pride and Prejudice and Zombies..." sighed Seth Graham-Smith, while promoting Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter at WonderCon, "It's a little sick. We gotta get it better. The script I will say is fantastic. We have a great script by David O. Russell and Marti Noxon. And it is ready to go. We just need to find the right director, the right star to do it. I have faith that after Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter comes out, and after Snow White and the Huntsman comes out, and things do well in that space, I think there'll be a renewed interest in getting it going." Fingers crossed. The world might enjoy watching Abraham Lincoln fighting vampires, but it needs to see Jane Austen's characters getting ripped apart by zombies.
