‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’ Set for Feb. 19, 2016

Screen Gems has set “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies,” starring Lily James (“Cinderella”), Sam Riley and Bella Heathcote, for a Feb. 19 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.

James is portraying Elizabeth Bennet and Riley is playing Mr. Darcy. Heathcote has been cast Elizabeth’s sister and Matt Smith is playing Mr. Collins.

The project is based on Seth Grahame-Smith’s 2009 novel, a mashup of the zombie horror genre with Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice.”

EuropaCorp’s thriller “Shut-In,” starring Naomi Watts, has also been dated for Feb. 19.

Warner Bros. also announced Monday it’s moving its “Vacation” reboot forward two months to July 31 from Oct. 9.
