News just dropped that Natalie Portman has signed on to play the "feisty heroine", Elizabeth Bennet, in the adaptation of Seth Gramme-Smith's "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies". Smith took the original Jane Austen novel and spiced it up by adding, naturally, zombie hordes to the dry proceedings. The book is currently available for sale, and has garnered mixed reviews. Needless to say, this adaptation just got a lot more interesting (and dare I say, sexy).
