After the news that a movie called ‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’ was being made after the same-titled novel, now we hear that Elton John and David Furnish’s production company Rocket Pictures will make a movie called Pride and Predator… We’d say Jane Austen is probably turning in her grave, but we don’t want to give people ideas for a vampire Jane Austen movie.
The costume drama will this time be interrupted by bloodthirsty aliens instead of zombies, the word is still not out which one we think sounds best. We’ll wait for the trailers to decide.
Director will be Will Clarke who previously only made one shortfilm, albeit an award winning one, called The Amazing Trousers.
“It felt like a fresh and funny way to blow apart the done-to-death Jane Austen genre by literally dropping this alien into the middle of a costume drama, where he stalks and slashes to horrific effect” Furnish told Variety.
If this trend continues, next week Pride and Prejudice in Space Against Mutated Vampire Werewolve Killer Clowns.
