Maybe this will keep the vampire movies at bay for a while.

Geek-fantasy Natalie Portman will take on the roll of Elizabeth Bennet the zombie exterminator in the upcoming film based on the best-selling book by Seth Grahame-Smith and Jane Austen. Portman is also set to produce the film backed by Lionsgate, and we’re hoping she tackles her new Zombie slaying gig with some serious prose and oomph. No word yet on a release date.
