Pride and Prejudice and Zombies mini-series just a rumor

Apparently the news of a zombie invasion on your TV screen was just a work of fiction.

Earlier, we reported on the production of a six-part mini-series based on the hilarious (I've just started reading it, Jane Austen was never this funny) Pride and Prejudice and Zombies book by Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith by a British production company. Today the co-author of the book, who has a second mashup title in the works based on the life of Abraham Lincoln as a hard-edged vampire hunter, denied the news. And if you have to ask which author, please have your head examined by something other than a can opener and a very good friend.

The "living" author wrote on his Twitter page, "there's NO TRUTH to those PPZ 'miniseries' rumors" and noted on his Facebook page that efforts are being made to produce the series as a theatrical film. Sigh, I guess the only time we'll get to see anything zombie-related on our TVs is footage of the inevitable religious apocalypse.

As a long time Jane Austen fan, I was horrified to see the books. My daughter has read them and thinks they are funny. I guess I'm just crotchety, because I can't see ruining a classic. It is bad enough the film makers do it.
