Jennifer Ehle and Colin Firth together again?

I hate to keep up with Hollywood gossip, and what actors/actresses are doing, but ever since the A&E/BBC ’95 Pride and Prejudice with Jennifer Ehle and Colin Firth, I have personally longed to see them both grace the screen together again.  My wish was granted, in a bizarre way, with both having returned to act in The King’s Speech (released 10 December 2010), which I have just seen at the movies.

Coming Soon! Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dreadfully Ever After

Are you zombied to death yet?  Because March of this year we can look forward to the release of the third instalment in the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies series.  “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dreadfully Ever After” with a reportedly zombied-up Mr. Darcy on the front cover.  Although, to be honest, I’m not 100 per cent sure what I’m looking at below.

It’s already available for pre-order and I am sorely tempted.  RRPing at (US)$12.95 according to Amazon, it sounds like a bargain (particularly if Hockensmith can keep up the effort from Dawn of the Dreadfuls).  The title is a nice little wordplay, and manages to give nothing away about the story itself (will it really be dreadfully? Somehow I think not.) which is refreshing.

It didn’t go down well with the tutorial, I can tell you! Continue reading

Pride and Prejudice Tattoos

You love the book, and the remakes and the soundtracks… but does anyone love it enough to have it printed on themselves for life? Apparently, yes.

Teasha Patterson  (who tweets under @TheWriteRussian) has a fantastic quote from Pride and Prejudice on her upper back:
