Charles Dance and Lena Headey cast in Pride And Prejudice And Zombies

Pride And Prejudice And Zombies has added a brace of Game Of Thrones stars to its ensemble, with Charles Dance and Lena Headey signing on to join the production.

No word as yet regarding who they will be playing, although in a scrap between a Lannister and a member of the undead, we know who our money would be on…

The new film will adapt Seth Grahame-Smith’s cult novel, which takes Jane Austen’s classic story and throws a liberal amount of brain-eating zombies into the mix…

Deadline reports that Screen Gems has now snapped up the US distribution writes for the film, with cameras set to roll on the project on 24 September after several years in development.

Dance and Headey will join a largely home-grown cast including Matt Smith, Sam Riley, Lily James, Jack Huston and Bella Heathcote, with the film set to open at some point in 2015.
