While we're on the topic of books-to-movies, Variety is reporting that Natalie Portman will be cast as Elizabeth Bennet in "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies." The book, a surprise best seller, is a retelling of Jane Austen's novel -- but decidedly bloodier. As Bennett searches for love and independence, an outbreak of a deadly virus turns the undead into vicious killers. A feel-good tale!
