Matt Smith Vs zombies! Come on, admit it, we had you at that, right?

Former Doctor Who lead, Matt Smith, has joined the cast of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, based on the Seth Grahame-Smith novel. Smith will play “Mr. Collins, a parson who is on the lookout for a wife and proposes to Bennett”.

The adaptation has been plagued from the start with it looking like it wouldn’t happen, but now it seems it’s moved into full flight. Heatvision are reporting that The movie will start filming on September 24th and the cast will include Lily James, Sam Riley, Jack Huston, Bella Heathcote and Douglas Booth with Burr Steers directing.

Based on Jane Austen’s boo Pride and Prejudice, only the events of the book now run alongside a zombie invasion.

More as we get it true believers…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
