Pride and Prejudice and Zombies could invade your TV screen

Pride and Prejudice and ZombiesIf you're a fan of sweeping 19th century British tales of lost innocence and moral influences and zombies, God has answered your prayers.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, the wildly popular adaptation of Jane Austen's famous novel infused with kick-ass zombie action by writer Seth Grahame-Smith, is being made into a six-part TV mini-series. Groovy! Is there any chance they could convince Keira Knightley to don the frock one more time and pick up a kitana for some serious Elizabethan ass kicking?

The series hasn't scored a network or even a start date since the production has barely made its way out of its egg shell, but the project seems promising so far. Deadline Productions is at the ship's helm who produced a very quirky looking science-fiction cop series called Phoo Action for the BBC. Make sure you wait at least one hour after taking your ecstasy before viewing the trailer.

Unless I missed something, 'Phoo Action' was just a pilot. Thank heaven.

A mini-series would have been nice (apparently it's an untrue rumor though), but I would have preferred a remake-ish movie with the same cast from the last Pride and Prejudice. It would be too good. I think most of those actors and actresses would go for it, maybe not Judi Dench, but I think it would be a lot funnier.

On their official Facebook page, they deny this, saying:

"By the way, there's NO TRUTH to those PPZ "miniseries" rumors floating around on the Internets. I have no idea who controls the "prideandzombies" Twitter account, but rest assured - it ain't me. The plan has always been to make the book a feature film."

So...
