Ok, just from the title of the movie, you’d expect Pride and Prejudice and Zombies to be a old “wink, wink” fest to the audience, right? I mean come on, it’s Pride and Prejudice…WITH ZOMBIES! But apparently, that’s not the intent:

“The idea was that it was Pride and Prejudice set in this alternate world and then for everyone to play it straight,” writer Burr Steers says. “The movie’s big wink is that there is no big wink. It’s definitely not camp.”

So…yeah, they’re really going for this feel. And apparently there will be a lot of action from both the guys and girls. Check out the official synopsis for the film:

“A zombie outbreak has fallen upon the land in Jane Austen’s classic tale of the tangled relationships between lovers from different social classes in 19th century England. Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James) is a master of martial arts and weaponry and the handsome Mr. Darcy (Sam Reilly) is a fierce zombie killer, yet the epitome of upper class prejudice. As the zombie outbreak intensifies, they must swallow their pride and join forces on the blood-soaked battlefield.”
