Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Lily James and cast at Comic Con

Posted on

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies might not be your typical story of the undead, but you still dispatch the walkers in the same old-fashioned way. 

The cast of the upcoming film based on Seth Grahame-Smith’s book — including Lily James, Matt Smith, Douglas Booth, Jack Huston, Sam Riley, and Bella Heathcote — stopped by the Entertainment Weekly Lounge at Comic-Con to talk about killing zombies in old-timey clothes. 

“You have to kill them twice. You have to get them in the brain. Then they’re screwed and never coming back,” James says. “[The film’s costume designer Julian Day] added leather and an Eastern influence on the costumes. At times, I had a leather corset and tight pants and other times, a big skirt that I could lift up and kick them in the head.”
