Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Photo: Bennet Sisters Ready for Battle!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Just in time for Halloween, the first photo from Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has arrived and trust us, you’ve never seen Jane Austen’s Bennet sisters quite like this.

The bestselling book by Seth Grahame-Greene is coming to the big screen with Elizabeth (Lily James), Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Mary (Millie Brady), Jane (Bella Heathcote) and Kitty (Suki Waterhouse) ready to deal with the zombie infestation that has plagued their Regency-era hamlet.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies will arrive in theaters sometime next year and also features Lena Headey, Charles Dance, Matt Smith, Jack Huston, Sam Riley (Maleficent) and Douglas Booth.

For those who are wondering… Riley will be Mr. Darcy!

“The first thing I did was reinsert all the Pride and Prejudice beats,” screenwriter Burr Steers told EW.

“Even in the original story, Elizabeth’s a fighter and beyond her contemporaries in her ambitions and her ideas of women. She’s a badass warrior. She’s a ninja.”
