It’s been in the process of being adapted for so damn long that it was starting to feel like literary horror mash up Pride and Prejudice and Zombies was never actually going to materialize. I know there’s been news and casting and reports of all varieties, but still, it just felt kind of out there in a vague way. But now, today, there’s honest to god photographic evidence that this is a real movie that’s going to happen.
This first photo from the Jane Austen adaptations (maybe augmented Jane Austen adaptation is a more accurate description) comes from EW, and shows off the core cast of the film. You’ve get a look at a quintet composed of Elizabeth (Lily James), Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Mary (Millie Brady), Jane (Bella Heathcote), and Kitty (Suki Waterhouse).
