Rooney Mara is fantastic in this delicate, sun-soaked Western

Ever since I was a boy, I always wondered about voice-overs...

Film review: Wadjda

Every now and then, a film comes along that changes the world. Sometimes, you don't even realise it's doing it.

World War H – or hate’s not all that

What do Shyamalan, World War Z and Man of Steel have in common? Hype - and hate.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and... David O Russell? Print E-mail

If this a rom-com, kill the director. If this is a rom-zom-com, get David O Russell! Strange words, but true, folks. Yes, according to Pajiba, Mr O Russell himself will be lensing the popular novel Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

It was no surprise that Seth Graham-Smith's book would get picked up by some studio - it flew off the shelves like the proverbial undead when it was released. Still, David O Russell is a weird choice. Don't get me wrong - I loved Huckabees as much as he did, but the Three Kings helmer hasn't exactly done costume drama zombies before.

Then again, neither has anyone else. So while it seems a bit odd to pick Mr O Russell to direct leading lady Natalie Portman, it's hard not to look forward to a witty take on Jane Austen's undead-infested feminine classic. At the very least, we may get another rant at Lily Tomlin halfway through.
