Seth Grahame-Smith's brilliant re-imagining of the Jane Austen classic 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies' has been waiting around to hit development for a while now. We know that helmer Craig Gillespie will be seated in the director's chair, and we no longer know who'll fill the two lead roles of Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennett. What we do know though is that writer and producer Marti Noxon (below) has been signed up for rewrite duties on the script originally worked on by David O. Russell and Michael Bacall. Noxon, whom has previously written for such hit TV shows as 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer', 'Mad Men' and for the recent sci-fi flick 'I Am Number Four', also penned the script for the new 'Fright Night' revamp starring Colin Farrell and David Tennant - of which Gillespie has directed!

Gillespie had this to say to MTV during a recent interview:

“It stays very true to the classic Pride and Prejudice,” Gillespie said of Grahame-Smith’s spin on Jane Austen’s beloved classic. “And it’s set in that period, then of course there’s zombies.”

When asked what he likes most about tackling the genre-bending film, Gillespie said that the unexpected coupling of old school aristocratic English society and the fantastical nature of zombies is too fun to resist.

“That clash [of] having to do such a classic dramatic piece that has so much weight to it and people are so familiar with, and then just throw it on its head [is appealing,]” Gillespie explained. He wouldn’t comment on any progress in casting, however.

“Not yet, no,” he said of whether he had an actors or actresses in mind for the coveted roles of Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Darcy. “It’s early.”
