Russell joins Austens Zombie Pic

Pride And Prejudice And Zombies lands director

David O. Russell is in line to direct Natalie Portman’s Jane Austen-inspired Pride And Prejudice And Zombies.


The Three Kings helmer is in talks to direct the movie, which is based on Seth Grahame-Smith’s book.


The story reimagines Austen’s heroine Elizabeth Bennet as a zombie-slaying young woman who finds herself caught in a viral outbreak in the 19th century.
