Natalie Portman to play a Zombie Killer

Natalie Portman going to take on some Zombies.


Natalie Portman will be having her hands full in a movie that will be mix of both Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. The film has been optioned by Lionsgate who are trying to get Natalie Portman for the film. This a really grossed out concept that might just click.

The book follows the original Jane Austen work, adding zombies to the mix. The story is about a woman’s quest for love and independence amid the breakout of a deadly virus that reanimates the dead and turns them into bloodthirsty killing machines.

Portman’s inclusions in this mess will probably be a welcome excuse to watch this in the big screen. She will play Elizabeth Bennet, who is busy killing zombies when that Mr Darcy arrives. I think will depend who screenwrites the book for the film. It could be something in the lines of Zombieland but it will be up to the director to take over the concept.

John has a keen sense of what ticks in the world of film. He can also be seen in three distinct short film titled Woken Shell, The Tea Shop in the Moon and The Waiting. Cinema has been the basic diet he has been on for the last 10 years. His personality can be judged by the choices of his films.


  1. First off, it’s Jane Austen, not Austin…also, Natalie Portman is also producing the film. The studio is not “trying” to get her, she has already signed on to produce and star; this is very much her project.

  2. Well the book already exists. The author of it claims it was co-written with Jane Austen and the blurb on the back states “Now with 30% more zombies”.

    So technically is isn’t an adaptation of Jane Austen’s book as such, but an adaptation of the other one.

  3. I wouldn’t mind seeing that. I’ve read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (It’s not a ‘mix of both Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’, it’s an adaptation of just one book), and it was a hell of a lot more interesting than the original. A film version could be pretty good
