Austen’s “Pride” Gets An Alien Predator

Move over “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies”, you’ve got competition.

Elton John’s Rocket Pictures plans to give the Jane Austen classic a sci-fi spin in “Pride and Predator” reports Variety.

Will Clark (“The Amazing Trousers”) is set to direct the film which veers from the traditional period costume drama when an alien crash lands and begins to butcher the Bennetts who suddenly have more than marriage and inheritance to worry about.

Clark, Andrew Kemble and John Pape co-wrote the script, while Steve Hamilton Shaw and David Furnish are producing. John will supervise the music and shooting will begin in London later this year.
