Matt Smith is officially Mr. Collins in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies! The Seth Grahame-Smith novel from Quirk has been on a rocky road in it’s journey to the big screen but everything seems to going smoothly now. Smith is slated to start shooting September 24th with Lily James, Sam Riley, Jack Huston, Bella Heathcote, and Douglas Booth.
For those of you that don’t know the premise of this book, it’s a horror comedy spin on the classic where Liz Bennet decides she is better suited for fighting zombies than looking for a husband. F**k yeah!
Matt Smith’s character is trying to make Bennet his wife. I’ve never actually read the book, so here is to hoping that Smith doesn’t get eaten, while looking for love!
