There have been over a dozen motion picture adaptations of Jane Austen’s classic novel Pride and Prejudice, but thus far, none of them had zombies. That’s all about to change with Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, a new horror-romance-comedy hybrid that’s coming out in theaters on February 5, 2016, starring Lily James (Cinderella), Sam Riley (Maleficent), Bella Heathcote (Dark Shadows), Lena Headey (Game of Thrones) and Jack Huston (Ben-Hur).

Crave caught up with Jack Huston at Comic-Con 2015 to talk about is iconic role in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. In the film, Huston plays George Wickham, one of history classic douchebags who is – in a way – personally responsible for almost all of the “prejudice” in the title. Huston told us all about the adaptation, fighting zombies, and the film’s new ending, which will surprise fans of the original book and Seth Grahame-Smith’s popular undead reimagining.
