Matt Smith, most famously known for his role as The Doctor in the long running British sci-fi show Doctor Who, has joined the cast of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. The film is an adaption of the Seth Grahame-Smith novel of the same name.
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is a parody of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. It resembles much of the same story as Austen’s original, but Liz Bennett would rather fight the zombies that are plaguing the country side than get married.
Smith will be playing Mr. Collins, a man looking for a wife and proposes to Liz Bennett.
Other members of the cast include Lily James, Sam Riley, Jack Huston, Bella Heathcote and Douglas Booth. The film is set to start filming September 24th.
