Empire Online has just announced that Matt Smith – forever the Eleventh Doctor in my heart – has been cast as William Collins in the movie version of Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith’s Pride and Prejudice and Zombies! The 2009 Quirk book takes Austen’s Pride and Prejudice and adds a little zombie flavor to the storyline.

Matt Smith Cast in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies!

Smith’s character, Mr. Collins, is a bit of a obnoxious fop in the original Austen work – looks like I’ve got to bump Grahame-Smith’s book up on my never-ending to-read list and see what happens to Collins and his equally obnoxious patron, Lady Catherine DeBurgh, in the Regency zombie apocalypse.

More details as they come in!
