Matt Smith has moved on from battling weeping angels to battling the undead hordes in the upcoming movie, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. According to THR, he will be playing Elizabeth’s clergyman cousin, Mr. Collins, who is looking for a wife.
The zombie-fied adaptation of the Jane Austen classic has been in the works for years, but casting issues have bogged down production. However, it looks as though this movie is finally going to get made (whether you want it or not).
The rest of the cast includes Lily James (Elizabeth Bennet), Sam Riley (Fitzwilliam Darcy), Jack Huston (George Wickham), Bella Heathcote (Jane Bennet), and Douglas Booth (Mr. Bingley).
