‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies 2’ Could Be ‘Like Marvel’

Cinema Blend recently spoke with writer and director Burr Steers at a Pride and Prejudice and Zombies press day in LA and asked about the film's post-credits sequence, as well as Steers' plans if ever there's going to be a second film.

Apparently, Steers' vision goes way beyond a simple zombie apocalypse.

The Pulp Fiction actor said:

I have a whole idea for it, but I don't know if it's, we'll see how this does. The thing about it is, you have these characters, and now you can take these characters and go off and do anything you want with them, and it's kind of great… I was thinking more in sort of vague story lines, but escape from post-apocalyptic London, Wickham sort of ascending to a dark throne. And also, the other thing that's really funny is you can bring in, and you have to limit yourself on this, but you can bring in any character that's part of public domain, any character from the Bronte's or you could have Heathcliff… It's like Marvel, it's all… You can have Jules Verne! You have some people coming over in balloons!

Personally, the idea sounds over the top – mixing in characters from Emily Bronte and Jules Verne's novels with Austen's. The movie is called Pride and Prejudiceand Zombies after all. However, considering the film's premise in general, I suppose it would be more exciting to see all these novels' characters have their own zombified cinematic universe.

Alas, we can only wait and see whether there will ever be a Pride and Prejudice and Zombies 2. Right now, you can see the first film in theaters to see if it has any actual shot at a second film.
