Pride and Prejudice and ZombiesNatalie Portman has given an update on the status of the big-screen version of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. The love of my life Ms. Portman, who will also produce and star in the movie, has told MTV that filming is expected to begin sometime next year (hopefully after other characters are cast).

The woman I want to marry Ms. Portman also displays some of that Harvard education of hers in the interview by making the analogy between women who obsessively contemplate getting married and zombies. It's as if they gain sustenance on the entire man instead of just his brains.

David O. Russell is scheduled to direct. He's more known for quirky, smaller movies rather than horror-action flicks, but Pride and Prejudice and Zombies could easily be both. As with the novel it's based on, it would be a very clever if somewhat misleading way of getting children interested in the works of Jane Austen.
