It is a truth universally acknowledged that a classic novel of independent acclaim will be in want of a zombie adaptation.

Based on the parody novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies film will merge Jane Austen’s 1813 novel of manners with elements of modern zombie fiction. Matt Smith has been cast to star, and the film is scheduled for released in 2015.

Here are the five best quotes from the book:

Elizabeth lifted her skirt, disregarded modesty, and delivered a swift kick to the creature's head.

Thank you, sir, but I am perfectly content being the bride of death.

Your mother will never see you again if you do not marry Mr Collins and I will never see you again if you do; for I shall not have my best warrior resigned to the service of a man who is fatter than Buddha and duller than the edge of a learning sword.

I dare say she means to keep you from his attentions. Your honour demands she be slain.

She remembered the lead ammunition in her pocket and offered it to him. 'Your balls, Mr Darcy?' He reached out and closed her hand around them. 'They belong to you, Miss Bennet'.
