The feature adaption of 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies', that 'classic regency romance with ultraviolent zombie mayhem, has been floating around in development for a little while now. But it seems after a heap of whispers and rumours Lionsgate finally have their director, in the form of Mike White ('Year of the Dog'). The Seth Grahame-Smith novel based on the literary classic 'Pride and Prejudice' by Jane Austen did have 'I Heart Huckabees' helmer David O. Russell  originally attached, as well as Natalie Portman to star. However none of this has come to fruition and they have both moved on to other things. White, who previously penned 'School of Rock', is also currently working on another adaption script for the Edgar Wright directed 'Them'.

Here's a bit of a breakdown of what the novel's all about...

"The story 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" (though the word "zombie" did not enter the English language until 1819),[9] 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: Messages between houses are sometimes lost when the couriers are captured and eaten; characters openly discuss and judge the zombie-fighting abilities of others; women weigh the pros and cons of carrying a musket (it provides safety, but is considered "unladylike")."
