Spring 2016 saw the release of the film Pride + Prejudice + Zombies (2016, Burr Steers). It is, entirely as the title suggests, a version of the Jane Austen novel with zombies. The original
concept came from an editor at Quirk Books, a small publishing house based in Philadelphia, who contracted television writer Seth Grahame-Smith to realise the idea. The book was published
in April 2009 and very quickly made it onto the New York Times bestseller list. By June the same year, it had been optioned by Hollywood production company Lionsgate, though
it would be another seven years before the project was finally completed.
