Update, 12/3/09, 12:50PM: Our suspicions that this report was a little shady are confirmed. Author Seth Grahame-Smith confirms that the rumor is false and the adaptation of P&P&Z is to be a feature film. Either way, we are still hoping for some parody of the BBC miniseries — possibly the infamous lake scene? [The original post follows.]

According to reports based on the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Twitter feed, the zombie-romance-classic mashup will be adapted into a 6-part miniseries. As P&P&Z fans, we can’t wait to see this Regency-ninja-zombie thing done right!

The miniseries will evidently be produced by Deadline Productions, which seems relatively legit. We are, however, calling the report unconfirmed, since we’re unsure of the Twitter page‘s authenticity. But IMDB and P&P&Z author Seth Grahame-Smith have mentioned a P&P&Z adaptation, and the Twitter page does have some pretty great concept art (as seen on the left of this post) — so, we’re going to go ahead and celebrate.

Anyone who is a fan of P+P-Z (i.e., the original Pride and Prejudice) knows that the most beloved adaptation is the 6-part 1995 Pride and Prejudice BBC miniseries starring Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle.

This begs the question of whether the miniseries will be produced as a parody of the much-loved BBC miniseries. We say, bring on the critical disdain!

Breathers, a forthcoming zombie romance novelAnother upcoming zombie love story that’s getting some press is Breathers: A Zombie’s Lament by debut novelist S. G. Browne. From the reviews, it sounds like your typical coming-of-age romantic comedy set to a silly zombie beat.

Breathers, which doesn’t come out until March 3, is already being adapted for film by Geoff LaTulippe. It may not be getting all the buzz of P&P&Z, but it’s got potential.

We’re itching to get our hands on Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith, which comes out March 13th, and we aren’t the only ones. This book has gotten so many pre-orders on Amazon that the publisher apparently gave the author a pony.

P&P&Z Author Grahame-Smith

Being a huge fan of both Jane Austen and zombie lit, I was already sold on this book, but if I hadn’t been,┬áthe author’s Valentine’s day blog post from Darcy to Elizabeth would’ve sold me.

Seth Grahame-Smith, we’ll be watching you. We like your brains.
