But I want Capt. Aubrey vs. Jaws!

Though “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” might be the best book EVAH, I have to say that I’m not so sure about the movie “Pride and Predator.”

Will Clark is set to direct “Pride and Predator,” which veers from the traditional period costume drama when an alien crash lands and begins to butcher the mannered protags, who suddenly have more than marriage and inheritance to worry about.

“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 said.

Thanks, Mary!

    Wait, wasn’t that already the premise of Outlander?

    Not so sure about the movie? What’s not to be sure about?

    It sounds ridiculous. And hilarious. And thus: rad!

    Or, I guess I can see how it could end up being the most horrid movie ever.

    Just thinking about ridiculously awesome movies makes me want to watch Lake Placid again (really for no other reason than to hear Betty White say “If I had a ****, this is where I’d tell you to suck it”)

    Sorry but I love Betty White. In fact, I think she should be cast as the old and proper costumed matriarch who suddenly has to show her bad-ass side when the aliens drop…

    wow – this has turned into quite a random comment…fitting perhaps?
