Thumbs up on both counts.

  • Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is going to be a miniseries.  If it's done right, I think it could be vastly superior to the book -- while I enjoyed what I read, it never totally grabbed me because it read like The Abridged Edition: WITH NEW ZOMBIE ACTION!! , and so the joke got old and I never actually finished it.  But a movie version could work.  If, as I said, it's done right.
  • And in other Quirk Books news, that hilarious Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters trailer (though I'm still not sure why the sea monster is living in a lake...) is going to be screened in movie theaters.  Which I think is a move that is just made of awesome.
