Deadline reports the film is finally heading into production in September with Lily James (Downtown Abbey, Cinderella) as Elizabeth Bennett, Sam Riley (Maleficent, On the Road) as Mr. Darcy, and Bella Heathcote as an unspecified Bennett sister (Dark Shadows). Jack Huston (Eclipse, Boardwalk Empire) is also in talks for the film. Burr Steers (17 Again, Charlie St. Cloud) is set to direct from a screenplay co-written by David O. Russell (Silver Linings Playbook). Pride And Prejudice And Zombies previously held a 2015 release date, but no official date is scheduled at this time.
