Marti Noxon – writer/producer of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” and writer of I Am Number Four and Fright Night – has been tapped to do a rewrite of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Lionsgate’s historical retelling being directed by Craig Gillespie. David O. Russell and Michael Bacall have turned in previous drafts.
The Seth Grahame-Smith project mixes up Jane Austen’s 1813 classic novel “Pride and Prejudice,” centering on Elizabeth Bennet’s quest for love and independence amid the outbreak of a virus that turns the dead into zombies. The story’s set in an alternate version of 19th Century England that features deadly ancestors roaming the countryside.
