Lily James ("Downton Abbey") and Bella Heathcote call the ladies of PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES "Spice Girls with swords" while Matt Smith (Dr. Who) describes the female zombie slayers as "sexy" in his book. Their co-stars Jack Houston, and Douglas Booth also enjoyed the ladies kick butt on set and on the screen. The actors praise the film for its female empowerment and enjoyed the fact that the men are the damsels in distress. Listen to the interview with the PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES stars below.
Jane Austen's classic book is re-imagined as a zombie apocalypse in PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES starring Lily James as the tough-as-nails Elizabeth Bennet and Sam Riley (Maleficent) as Mr. Darcy. The ladies of PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES have more action scenes than the men so CineMovie wanted to know if the men enjoyed watching the actresses in action. James and Heathcote quite enjoyed having the men be their "damsels in distress."
