More Austen, more casting

Source: Variety

According to Variety, Natalie Portman will be tackling the role of Elizabeth Bennet in the screen adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. What is Pride and Prejudice and Zombies? It is literally the tale of Pride and Prejudice with Zombies in it. That might sound strange but it surprisingly works. I haven’t quite finished reading Pride and Prejudice and Zombies just yet but I can tell you that it is quite hilarious because the story of Pride and Prejudice is there and the whole Zombie aspect makes an interesting reprise on the novel. According to IMDB.com, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is expected to be released in 2011.

Also expected in 2011 is Lost in Austen. Lost in Austen is a spin on Pride and Prejudice where a woman enters an alternate world where the characters from Pride and Prejudice are not fictional but real people.

That’s a lot of Pride and Prejudice on the horizon. Still there are Bennets and Darcys to cast. Who would be in your dream Pride and Prejudice cast?

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Tony Award winner Idina Menzel (“Wicked”) may be joining the cast of Fox’s “Glee” for a recurring role! Earlier this season Menzel’s “Wicked” co-star, Kristin Chenoweth, guest starred on the show so it would be great to see more Broadway alums make their way to “Glee”.

Idina Menzel + Glee = “Wicked” cool. 🙂

Couldn’t resist the play on words. Those are my thoughts, what do you think?
