Los Angeles: Actor Matt Smith, who will be seen in “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies”, finds it interesting to have zombies in a story.
“It’s quite interesting to add zombies to any story. Somehow, it makes the stakes more dynamic,” Smith said in a statement.
‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’ is based on Seth Garahame-Smith’s popular parody of the classic Jane Austen romance novel.
Talking about the film further, Smith said: “I went back to the original book as a source material to try to sort of make things up. Burr Steers, director allowed a platform and environment where you could take risks and throw things out there that weren’t in the script.”
Smith, who is famous for being the 11th Doctor in the BBC show, ‘Doctor Who’, will be appearing in his first movie since ‘Terminator Genisys’. The former BBC star is known for being as full of whimsy and enthusiasm in his interviews as he is in his role as the Doctor.
In the movie, Smith will essay Mr. Collins, who tries to woo Lizzie Bennet (played by Lily James) in his attempts to secure a wife.
The film is releasing on February 19.
