    Elton John's Rocket Pictures hopes to make the first Jane Austen adaptation to which men will drag their girlfriends.
    Will Clark is set to direct "Pride and Predator," which veers from the traditional period costume drama when an alien crash lands and begins to butcher the mannered protags, who suddenly have more than marriage and inheritance to worry about.

    Shooting will begin in London later this year. John exec produces, and his Rocket partners Steve Hamilton Shaw and David Furnish are producing.

    Clark, who directed award-winning short "The Amazing Trousers," wrote the script with Andrew Kemble and John Pape.

    "It felt like a fresh and funny way to blow apart the done-to-death Jane Austen genre by literally dropping this alien into the middle of a costume drama, where he stalks and slashes to horrific effect," Furnish said.
    And for those that have not heard about it, Pride And Prejudice With Zombies.

    Personally I think they need to remake more old classics with Zombies.

    Finally a Jane Austen adaptation I think I'll enjoy.

    I have avoided costume dramas until now, finally there's an adaptation of a Jane Austen novel that's worth my while watching.
