Elton John’s Rocket Pictures is to produce Pride and Predator, a film that combines Jane Austen’s England with aliens.
Will Clark will direct the alien costume drama, which tells the story of an alien who crash lands and begins to butcher the characters from Pride and Prejudice.
“It felt like a fresh and funny way to blow apart the done-to-death Jane Austen genre by literally dropping this alien into the middle of a costume drama, where he stalks and slashes to horrific effect,” producer David Furnish told Variety.
The movie follows in the footsteps of another similar twist on Austen, the book Pride and Prejudice and Zombies which is set for release in April.
Shooting will begin in London later this year.
