It looks like a former Doctor is joining the cast "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" according to an exclusive over at The Hollywood Reporter. Matt Smith recently ended his run on "Doctor Who" but now he'll be taking on the role of Mr. Collins in the film based on the Seth Grahame-Smith adaptation novel.

The Burr Steers-directed and co-written film begins filming on September 24 and will also star Lily James, Sam Riley, Jack Huston, Bella Heathcote and Douglas Booth. THR sums up the horror-comedy, "The movie is a horror-comedy spin on Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. The heroine, Liz Bennett (James), is pressured by her family to marry into a wealthy upper-class home but chafes at the stiff social mores of Victorian England. Instead, she feels that she should help defend the countryside against the onslaught of a horrifying zombie plague."

We'll keep you posted on any new details including when it'll hit theaters next year.
