Natalie Portman will star in and produce a film adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, based on the Seth Grahame-Smith/Jane Austen mashup. Variety reported that Lionsgate will finance and distribute, and "Portman will play feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet, who is distracted from her quest to eradicate the zombie menace by the arrival of the arrogant Mr. Darcy."
