Emma Greenwell has joined the cast of “Pride Prejudice and Zombies” starring Lily James, Douglas Booth and Jack Huston.

Pic also stars Bella Heathcote and Sam Riley.

Filming will start in September. Cross Creek Pictures, which has a distribution deal with Universal, has acquired domestic rights with a commitment for a wide U.S. release.

Burr Steers (“Charlie St. Cloud”) is directing from a screenplay he wrote with David O. Russell.

Producers are Cross Creek topper Brian Oliver, Allison Shearmur, Sean McKittrick, Natalie Portman, Annette Savitch, Tyler Thompson and Marc Butan.

Sierra/Affinity is handling foreign sales. The project had been set up with Panorama last year but came over to Sierra/Affinity with Butan earlier this year.

Greenwell, who is in Showtime’s “Shameless,” will play Booth’s sister in the pic.

She is repped by WME, Troika and Thruline Entertainment.
