Lionsgate has released a couple of new character posters for their upcoming adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith’s horror parody of the classic Jane Austen period tale, Pride And Prejudice And Zombies.
Despite what the marketing has shown us thus far, it seems it won’t only be the five Bennet sisters – Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Jane (Bella Heathcote), Elizabeth (Lily James), Mary (Millie Brady), and Kitty (Sukie Waterhouse) – that’ll be slicing their way through the hordes of the undead, as they’ll have a bit of help from two stone-cold badasses: Richard Harrow and Cersei Lannister, A.K.A Boardwalk Empire‘s Jack Huston and Game Of Thrones‘ Lena Headey.
Huston will play the charming but duplicitous (at least in the original story) Mr. Wickham, while an eye-patch sporting Headey will portray Lady Catherine de Bourgh, who is usually depicted as a foil for Elizabeth (James).
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is set to arrive in theaters on February 5, 2016, and in the meantime, you can check out the synopsis and those aforementioned character posters below.
Pride And Prejudice And Zombies is a fresh twist on Jane Austen’s widely celebrated novel. A mysterious plague has fallen upon 19th century England, the land is overrun with the undead and feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet is a master of martial arts and weaponry. Casting aside personal and social prejudices, Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy must unite on the blood-soaked battlefield to rid the country of the zombie menace and discover their true love for one another.
