Jack Huston, most known as the endearing and adorable man Richard Harrow in “Boardwalk Empire” has officially joined the cast of the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. The film is based on Seth Grahame-Smith’s novel reimagining of the iconic Jane Austen novel.
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies follows the plot of the Austen classic in a timeless tale of a woman’s quest for love and independence amid the outbreak of a deadly virus that turns the undead into vicious killers.
Huston will play George Wickham in the film alongside Lily James as Elizabeth Bennett, Bella Heathcote as another Bennett sister and Sam Riley as Mr. Darcy as the rebel with a cause (whose casting I vehemently disagree with by the way.)
The adaptation is being directed by Burr Steers who is most known for his work on the film Igby Goes Down. It was scripted by Steers and David O. Russell. It will be produced by Natalie Portman, Marc Butan, Sean McKittrick, Brian Oliver, Annette Savitch, Allison Shearmur and Tyler Thompson
