The adaptation that has managed to associate a myriad of gorgeous ladies over the months and years in spite of its lack of forward moving has been 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies'. Based on the novel by best selling author Seth Grahame-Smith ('Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter') the feature revolves around the plot for Jane Austen's 'Pride and Prejudice' in a twisted universe where zombies also roam the countryside. Anne Hathaway ('Les Miserables'), Emma Stone ('Zombieland'), Blake Lively ('Gossip Girl'), Scarlett Johansson ('Avengers Assemble') and Natalie Portman (who will now be producing) have all at one point or another been rumoured to take the leading role. However, it's official, the young beautiful browed Lily Collins -below ('The Blind Side') has score the lead with '17 Again' helmer Burr Steers attached to direct. David O'Russell provides the script based on Seth's original novel.

"'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies' follows the plot of Pride and Prejudice, but places the novel in an alternative universe version of Regency-era England where zombies (and indeed skunks and chipmunks) roam the English countryside. Described as the "stricken", "sorry stricken", "undead", "unmentionables", or just "zombies", the deceased ancestors of England are generally viewed by the characters as a troublesome, albeit deadly, nuisance. Their presence alters the original plot of the story in both subtle and significant ways."
