Pride and predator

Rocket Pictures, the film company owned by Elton John, is to remake the Jane Austin classic, Pride and Prejudice with an interesting twist.

David Furnish, the partner of Elton John, is set to produce the new film which will follow traditional lines until the end when an alien will drop into the scene and cause horror and mayhem in the period drama. “It felt like a fresh and funny way to blow apart the done-to-death Jane Austin genre,” said David Furnish to Variety.
