Matt Smith For Pride And Prejudice And Zombies
Former Doctor Who star recruited to cast of Jane Austen period horror spoof...
He's already confounded Doctor Who fans by appearing in Ryan Gosling's weird-as-flip directorial debut Lost River.
And now former Time Lord Matt Smith has been recruited to the cast of a Jane Austen adaptation - with zombies.
The 31-year-old star will play a parson in Pride And Prejudice And Zombies, a movie version of Seth Grahame-Smith's book - itself adapted from Austen's classic Pride And Prejudice.
Lily James plays Elizabeth Bennet, the feisty young woman who prefers to fight undead hordes rather than settling into married life.
And Smith will play a clergyman who proposes to her - according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The movie's cast also includes Douglas Booth, Jack Huston and Sam Riley.
