Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Movie Confirmation Update

I’ve been fairly paranoid that Pride and Prejudice and Zombies isn’t going to make the big screen. Mainly because everyone has been so hush-hush about it, and there has been barely a whisper of news about it for quite a few months if I’m estimating correctly.  However, Natalie Portman our potential Lizzy (and by God is she beautiful), has told MTV at a comicon event that filming will most likely begin next year.

Jane Austen’s Fight Club viral video

“After Fight Club, we were inclined to see the world differently”

If you’re as big a fan of youtube as you are of Pride and Prejudice (like myself) then you will have most likely come across the New Biggest Thing, a hit video, made this year, that parodies Fight Club (you know, that awesome film with Brad Pitt and Edward Norton) using Jane Austen’s leading ladies.  It’s had over 1,110,000 views at the time of me publishing this post.  And if you haven’t seen it, then prepare yourself for some laughs at the video below!  And get ready for my analysis of the Pride and Prej elements.

Number 10:
Japanese Pride and Prejudice

I have a sneaking suspicion that I have seen this cover somewhere before, and I can see a whisper of the English at the bottom of the image, and hence it only makes 10th on my list.  The language looks gorgeous though.

Rude Awakenings of a Jane Austen Addict, Video Review

Rude Awakenings of a Jane Austen Addict by Laurie Viera Rigler

Firstly, I know I haven’t blogged for a while (I’m sorry!).  As mentioned in the video below (in which I had just had a shower so my hair and makeupless face are kind of feral, but ahh well), I’ve been involved with some internships and a new magazine called the IF Project (which, although is still undergoing changes and needs some fixing, you can check out my section of on the website linked!)- where I was writing the news segment.  Anyway, I decided to try and make it up to you guys by making a video of my latest find!
